Alphabetown USA, LLC announces a new series of stories slated to hit stores this summer. The new line will launch in July with Madison’s Magical Adventure, followed by The Vowel Gang Takes a Trip, amd with more titles to come in the future.

The Alphabetown USA series was developed by Ryan and Nicole Mayer, a husband and wife team from Rolesville, North Carolina and is illustrated by artist Russ Simmons. The team cite their children as inspirations behind the Alphabetown USA books.

“Ryan and I turn their ideas into stories and incorporate the educational component,” said Nicole Mayer.  “Reading, and the ability to read, is such a critical part of a child’s development that we wanted to create books that were not only fun for young children, but served as an educational tool for parents and teachers as well.

The Alphabetown USA series is currently available online at,,, and in select Barnes & Noble, Learning Express and Brilliant Sky retail stores. They are suitable for children ages 2-8.
