“Bursting with…surprise and delight. An inexhaustible visual feast.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In this acclaimed picture book by Anita and Arnold Lobel, take a stroll down Market Street to see the whimsical shopkeepers dressed in their wares on one boy’s fantastical shopping adventure.

Enter a wondrous marketplace like no other that has everything from A to Z! Inspired by 17th-century French engravings, Anita Lobel’s delightful illustrations imaginatively clothe each shopkeeper in their wares. Find one shopkeeper dressed completely in gloves, another covered in wigs, and even one completely dressed in oranges! This beautiful and unique tale takes you on a journey through the alphabet as you discover all the things one boy buys for his special friend during an incredible shopping trip.
