Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"A is for Apples, some green and some red / B is for Breakfast we're having in bed" begins Blake's spirited ABC book. Each page playfully introduces a letter of the alphabet, a word beginning with that letter, and a phrase describing the word. Many pages are humorous, such as "G is for Grandma--she's really quite fat / H is for Hair that goes under your hat." The rhyming text is bouncy, as in "M is for Mud that we get on our knees / N is for Nose--and he's going to sneeze!" The text is also relevant to children's experiences, as in "I is for illness (which nobody likes) / J is for Junk--rusty beds and old bikes." Blake's zany watercolor illustrations, loosely outlined in black ink, are vibrant and whimsical. The oversized format and the large, bold print add visual appeal. Ages 2-5.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-- With its rhyming text and hilarious watercolors, this oversized alphabet book is sure to charm the socks off young children. "A is for Apples, some green and some red/ B is for Breakfast we're having in bed." This rhythmic movement flows throughout the text, with the rhymes creating scenes of great fun, such as "L is for Legs that we wave in the the air," with an illustration of an adult and three children all standing on their heads. Every letter offers a good chuckle, some even an outburst of laughter, as Blake invites his readers to giggle over his crazy characters and detailed artwork, splashed on the page in his usual lighthearted manner. A sure delight for all young children, and an important addition to the concept book arena. --Leslie Barban, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC
