Little Appleby, blessed with an odd name and many relatives, longs to find a Zebra butterfly for his Cousin Clement's 99th birthday. What follows is a kind of sequential alphabet novel, first envisioned by Anne Parrish and her brother as children. Many pictures full and in text with the letter names cleverly worked in. NEWBERY HONOR BOOK.
