Acrostic adventures in New York

Dear Spies,

The Word Spy (aka The Word Snoop) is excited to see that one of her pangrammatic inventions features in the (very hard!) acrostic puzzle in the New York Times last weekend - click here and have a look!

What the puzzle uses is something the Word Spy wrote in the first Word Spy book:

A black cat dreamt every fourth goose hunted invisible jellyfish. Kindly let many nice ostriches pass quickly. Rather stupidly the umbrella voted when x-raying yellow zebras.

Okay, spies, you tell me. What's special about this paragraph?

Hint: Look at the first letter of each word!!!

yours, alphabetically, 

The Word Spy
