Editorial Reviews

Review

“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. . . .

What?!

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.

I bought this book for my infant grandson, so it will have to wait until I can read it with him.

This is definitely a book for animated out loud reading. It's fun and will be even more fun if your child can read one part and you the other. Letters A-Z and numbers 1-26 and maybe a re-read with colors! Oh the learning possibilities.

Thanks to HC.

Great for a preschooler learning to count and the alphabet! Lots of things to count and simple phonics, first letter sounds. Enough visual variety to hold the kids interest without becoming a distraction.

Perfect choice for a delightful adventure learning about numbers and letters. The illustrations alone are worth sharing the book with a child over and over again.

This book is fun, funny, and makes the kids think! My kids absolutely love it! There are a couple of typos that drive me batty, but I would highly recommend it!

Great way to learn numbers and letters in a fun, silly way! Interesting illustrations keep the kids engaged and wanting to count the items! We especially like the wolves with the xylophones and geese with the ice cream cones!
