Bunny with a Toolbelt, a Portland-based crafts business, created Elephabet, a children’s book that teaches kiddies their ABCs with the aid of cool elephant sculptures and humorous made-up words for adults to enjoy. Author and artist Hilary Pfeifer illustrates her word creations (like “cuckoophant” and “guacomolephant”) with handmade sculptures crafted from recycled materials. For readers inspired to create their own Self-A-Bet, they can buy a Do-it-yourSelfabet workbook. Some of the original pieces are available on Etsy and the book can be purchased on Amazon.
