“Readers won’t care whether it’s about letters or numbers - they will be too busy poring over the artwork and laughing.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
“While not for children just learning numbers or the alphabet, this offering will provide a fun way for those a bit older to review both.” (School Library Journal)
“Boldt’s illustrations have a dimensional, painterly quality that recalls Adam Rex’s work, and the absurd scenarios, strong-willed personalities, and visual gags will have kids laughing from A to 26.” (Publishers Weekly)
From the Back Cover
Welcome to this book about Numbers!
Welcome to this book about Letters!
Wait. . . .
Numbers and Letters both want to be the stars of this book! And when one alligator (that starts with an A!) and two bears (2 of them!) and three cars (1, 2, 3! A, B, C!) begin to show up, the havoc that ensues is as joyous a romp as a counting book . . . that is, an ABC book . . . has ever been. With vivid illustrations from author-illustrator Mike Boldt, this fresh and funny picture book plays with numbers and letters in the most imaginative way.
