Review

Charming children's book about kids and what they do when the parents aren't watching... fun for all ages. --EJ Thornton, author of Angel On Board

About the Author

For some magical purpose, the Alphabet Family chose Karen Muldoon to be the first human being ever entrusted to peek into their lives. Once inside, Karen discovered an entire secret world where imagination rules! She developed an elite club for anyone who wishes to come inside this secret world of imagination and entertainment. So far the only other person to join Karen in this secret world of imagination is Omar Castaneda, the illustrator. Omar stepped into this world and got to know every one of the Alphabet Family so that he could paint them. Omar loves to paint the wild adventures of this unusual family. His pictures are magical. Sometimes you can see yourself in them!

In Alphabet Family Wedding, the author does a great job of introducing the letters of the alphabet and giving them personalities that fit their shape and sound. It is a fun way to help children remember them. The family setting is also very entertaining. I especially enjoyed the encounter of Small q and Old Aunt T. I look forward to future adventures of the Alphabet Family.

"Alphabet Family Wedding" appeals on multiple levels. For the youngest alphabet newbies, it provides a relatable point of reference for the otherwise abstract (and intimidating) building blocks of written language. For more advanced readers, it's an engaging reading challenge coupled with an enriching story about embracing maturity. For parents, it's a warm window of perspective on childhood insecurities and an ornate allegory of growth, ambition, and the never-ending struggle for acceptance.

The clever premise and touching story both benefit from the foundation of Muldoon's extensive background in education and psychology. To top it off, Castaneda's artwork breathes further life into the Alphabet Family world, evoking a magic realist style that reconciles the story's high concept with very natural, everyday life experience.

I love this little book, and I'm sure you and your children will also.

I read this story to my seven and five year olds tonight. They LOVED it. The older one chuckled each time he recognized the correlation between the letter and its adjective (the letter "q" is a "quiet" cousin). He laughed out loud when the cousins were sent to the basement ("Because when you write them, they're the only ones that dip into the basement!" he exclaimed.) Even my five year old giggled at Uncle H being the "happiest" uncle because she caught H and happy. The best compliment? They begged for me to read it again. When I said, "I have another book for tonight" they both eagerly asked "an Alphabet Family?!" and we're sorely disappointed that I didn't have another one. We are looking forward to the next book!

This picture book teacher young readers about the differences between capital and lowercase letters in a fun way to separate them.

All the cousins get sent to the basement by grouchy Grandpa G when the adults have parties.

Small q wants to be upstairs with the grown ups and teenagers, but he has to disguise his curly tail and make himself taller to get away with it.

He not only has to make his way back upstairs to the party, but also not get caught!

When people become letters I guess odd is to be expected, but I really liked the subtle humor in this book, too, as some of the illustrations had the ends of my mouth curling up in a grin at times. Very good book!

I dug thru all my children's books from 4 months ago and for first time ever I will post any offshoots I found for free as of 8:30 am CT for others to enjoy which include:

1) The Elephant and the Apple by Stacie Murphy
2) Maggie Mouse Gets Lost by Haley Moonspur
3) The Garden Party by Peter Collier
4) When I Grow Up by Tracey Morley
5) Be Thankful for the Little Things by Louise Folger

I don't know how long they will remain free, but there wasn't a clinker in the bunch in my opinion should it ends up costing money. If people find this helpful I'll go looking back thru my pile from 3 months ago. Enjoy!

As a children's author myself, I enjoyed Karen Muldoon's unique look at the life of the Alphabet family. She is very creative in her approach. She not only reinforces the letters of the alphabet but tells a great tale about them when they get together. Children who are in one place but wish they were somewhere else will certainly relate to the main character in this story.

Miss M has just got married and at the party the small cousins g, j, p, q and y are banished down to the basement. "q" is not happy about this so he decides to disguise himself and become a funny looking small 'd'. Cousin 'g' helped him out the basement window. Uncle H lets him into the party not realizing who he is. It's not very long before Aunt T comes hobbling along on her rickety old leg. Remember a T only has one leg so Aunt T has to use a cane. (Funny illustration accompanies this text.) She recognizes him but lets him stay :)

Fun book to make alphabet learning more palatable.

Highly recommended and a definite 'keeper' in this house:)

After reading this book w/my son, I thought it was ingenious to present not only an innovative way to distinguish between the letters but the dynamics of a large family! The illustrations were fantastic and little q's adventure was great fun. I'm looking forward to learning more about the Alphabet Family!
