New Book "The Alphabet Grand Prix" Released by Wet Duck Publishing
Long Beach, CA, April 27, 2022 --( First-time author Andy Cox and published illustrator Richard Kinsey team up for this children’s book that teaches the ABCs in an engaging way: through rhyme, alliteration and detailed, colorful illustrations. Fatherhood and artistic expression drove Mr. Cox and Mr. Kinsey’s relationship, both of whom reside in Long Beach, CA. Their book is currently available through Wet Duck Publishing.

The Alphabet Grand Prix is heavy on alliteration and rhyme in its teaching of the ABCs. Kinsey’s illustrations match the flow of the words and add alliterative animals to each personified letter that is behind the wheel. The concept of the book is designed to be read to young children who are beginning to grasp letters, but skilled readers still find joy in the details of this picture book.

“This cheerful book offers whimsical elements and includes unusual terms like jalopy and vehicle manufacturer names that car-racing fans will enjoy spotting. The friendly, quirky-looking creatures are appealing, and the text’s tight focus on alphabet concepts offers learning opportunities... A lively educational book that will particularly appeal to animal and car enthusiasts.” — Kirkus Reviews

"The Alphabet Grand Prix" is available for purchase on as of Monday, April 25, 2022.
