About the author:
Hello and welcome!
My name is Kirsten Edwards aka KLeighE (pronounced Kaylee) of Hinterland Harmony Art and Illustrations. I am the author and illustrator of this uniquely fun and educational book. I reside in Sanger, Texas, on top of a hill in the country, with my husband and 5 cats, which gives me a lot of inspiration for creativity!
I simply adore illustrated books. Reading and art have always been an important part of my life, and I hope to bring that joy to children that makes them find a love of reading too.
A Journey Through Alphabet Land was originally A Journey Through Your ABC's. It used to be a regular story but I have changed it to a rhyming story. Since 2006 I have taught myself Photoshop and have become more adept in using the software. So, I decided to recreate the book and instead of a plain white background, I envisioned a land where a boy and girl dragonfly would visit to practice their letters of the alphabet. I scanned all the colored papers from a package of construction paper to my computer. Some I magically adjusted in Photoshop to get that perfect color I wanted that wasn't offered in the package, but I still managed to maintain the texture I wanted for this book. I have added some new creatures and objects, and updated some of the original art with this magical tool, called a clipping mask, to cover the old construction paper with new vibrant paper. I love the continuity of the pages. It's as if you're flying through Alphabet Land's territory and learning all about what and who resides in this magical land.

A Journey Through Alphabet Land
Two dragonflies, Shanook and Kakela, are going on a journey through Alphabet Land to practice the letters of the alphabet.
"We're going on a journey in Alphabet Land,
and to have you join us would be grand!
We'll start with 'A' and end with 'Z',
there's a lot of fun things for us to see,
like an airplane, a beaver and kangaroos,
there is even someone with eight shoes!"
