‘Life is an old story told over and over.’ ~Golden Lotus Fortune Cookie Company, East Orange, New Jersey Before I knew how to read, I had ‘read’ the complete works of Twain and Stevenson, Scott and Kipling, and every other storyteller gathered on each side of the fireplace in our living room. Like a treasure hunter, I would slide the grainy pages of indecipherable text aside to get at the smooth and shiny illustrations underneath. Ah!–The universal language of pictures! After I learned to read, I discovered another treasure: the parallel universe hidden between words and pictures, adding another layer to the story. That in a nutshell–or rather, a fortune cookie–is what Alphabook is all about.
