Editorial Reviews

Review

“Steig may have provided a new parlor game for the whole family.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“It’s altogether wonderful and funny, the drawings are vintage Steig, and it’s just right for everyone on your list, from Junior to Grandma.”—USA Today
 
“. . . the author/artist has created a flawless formula for laughter. . . . Adults as well as children will find the book frustrating, absurd, and addictive.”—The Dallas Morning News
 
“This companion volume to the ever-popular brainteaser CDB! is every bit as ingenious and twice as challenging as its predecessor.”—Booklist

About the Author

William Steig (1907-2003) was a cartoonist, illustrator and author of award-winning books for children, including Shrek!, on which the DreamWorks movies are based. Steig was born in New York City. Every member of his family was involved in the arts, and so it was no surprise when he decided to become an artist. He attended City College and the National Academy of Design. In 1930, Steig’s work began appearing in The New Yorker, where his drawings have been a popular fixture ever since. He published his first children's book, Roland the Minstrel Pig, in 1968.
 
In 1970, Steig received the Caldecott Medal for Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. His books for children also include Dominic; The Real Thief; The Amazing Bone, a Caldecott Honor Book; Amos & Boris, a National Book Award finalist; and Abel's Island and Doctor De Soto, both Newbery Honor Books. Steig's books have also received the Christopher Award, the Irma Simonton Black Award, the William Allen White Children's Book Award, and the American Book Award. His European awards include the Premio di Letteratura per l'infanzia (Italy), the Silver Pencil Award (the Netherlands), and the Prix de la Fondation de France. On the basis of his entire body of work, Steig was selected as the 1982 U.S. candidate for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for Illustration and subsequently as the 1988 U.S. candidate for Writing.
 
Stieg also published thirteen collections of drawings for adults, beginning with About People in 1939, and including The Lonely Ones, Male/Female, The Agony in the Kindergarten, and Our Miserable Life.
 
He died in Boston at the age of 95.

Although this is a companion to the equally clever " CDB", by the same author, this book, with its sophisticated phrases and illustrations, is even funnier and more impressive to grown-up readers. To rate it for "Readers 9 - 12" does it a disservice. It is a delight for any age.

In the on-line review of Wm. Steig's "CDC" the reviewer should know better that "the cure" in William Steig's rendition would be represented by "D Q-R"....shame on you. I am a huge fan of this clever book and love the corresponding pictures! What a blast! They have stood the test of time, I purchased "CDB"in 1969 when I was in jr. high and now as a parent with 5 children of my own, we still have a great time with the books!

My four children have enjoyed this book , as well as CDB. I brought both books in to my son's 4th grade "Reading Day" and the whole class participated in the "puzzle-solving" text. They had so much fun with both books!! I highly recommend these books for a fun and interactive read!

This is a very clever book and it's quite fun reading. However, my 4 year old and I read together all the time and I bought this for him thinking it would be good for him too, but some of the picture themes are not interesting for a small child. This would be good for a 9-10 years +.

If you enjoy struggling - and moaning at the punning clues - with the NYT crossword, you'll have a good time and a quick read, one that you'll want to repeat when feeling low. I brought my copy to the office; and am ordering more as gifts for twisted minds. FYI, the caption in question says to me, "Everyone here is dippy."

Middle-school children have to wrestle with this deceivingly simple book, often with better success than adults, which is what makes it so compelling!

I remembered this book from years ago and it was just as great as I remembered it. A fun phonic little romp through the alphabet, made into sentences.
