Have you ever seen a man dressed entirely in playing cards? Or a girl wearing a lollipop dress? Take a stroll through a most unusual market in this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of a Caldecott Honor Book. "In a delightful and unusual book, a boy trots down Market Street buying presents for a friend, each one starting with a letter of the alphabet. Every letter is illustrated by a figure ingeniously composed of, for instance, apples or wigs or quilts. The notion is original, and the sum total enjoyable and unique." --Horn Book.
