One day a 'glow' appeared in the shadow of the creature to become A. "Find your B and C ... all of the others will follow," whispered the 'glow.' ... From scribbles to alphabet the humans went. Helped by the creatures the Weaver had sent. The humans in time ... learned to make words. A cosmic and magical tale, Quite Early One Planet narrates the creation of the twenty-six letters of the alphabet through both poetic narrative and unique and colorful illustrations. The story depicts the early beginnings of language through creatures with claws, fur, and feathers. One special character, enhanced with a glow, becomes the leader of the alphabet. In Quite Early One Planet, author and illustrator Jerome Austin McNicholl sought to produce creatures that would have been the inspiration for humans to craft the cuneiform alphabet. From these animals, the alphabet springs to life.
