For fans of P is for Pterodactyl comes this groundbreaking spin on the ABC's from an acclaimed, bestselling author and artist pairing!
Here's a totally twisted take on the alphabet that invites readers to look at it in a whole new way: An A is an H that just won't stand up right, a B is a D with its belt on too tight, and a Z is an L in a tug-of-war fight! Twenty-six letters, unique from each other -- and yet, every letter looks just like one another! Kind of big family.
From two bestselling masters of wordplay and visual high jinks comes a mind-bending riddle of delightful doppelgängers and surprising disguises that reveal we're more alike than we may think. You'll never look at the alphabet the same way again!

My Thoughts: A really unique way of looking at the alphabet that will make readers smile, laugh, and want to read it again. Who knew that the alphabet could be so fun? Or that it was one big family? The message about how everyone's connected to each other is both sweet and timely. The art work is fantastic with bright colors and funny moments. This picture book is perfect for someone just learning the alphabet or someone who's learned their letters already; it's simply pure fun!

Library Recommendation: A must have for your school and public library!
