A book consisting of microtales about letters, in which the picture blends with the text, and thus a graphical unit is created. Therefore, the book is designed for children at the age, when they see letters for the first time. An adventure begins, when the letters jump up from workbooks and books. They are the main heroes of the simple stories depicted in the illustrations. Chaos among the letters is sorted out by a wise paragraph, who lines the letters up according to a dictionary. So every letter has its own place again. One picture carries the information, that the Roman alphabet is not the only alphabet, but that there are various grapheme systems, e.g. Old Slavic, and by underlining this fact, the authors respond to the anniversary of the arrival of the missionaries. The didactics is hidden, the young reader is able to get to know the anatomy of letters and their order in a natural way. The book was awarded The Most Beautiful Book and The Best Children's Book of the Autumn 2015, and a Diploma Paper as one of The Most beautiful books of Slovakia 2015.
