K-Gr 2—With this quirky alphabet book, Clayton provides affirming concepts for each letter: "C is for Confident Cool and Collected/D is for Dreaming things never expected…/Q is for Quiet to escape from the madness/R is for Reading but also for radness." Hand-drawn fonts, which alternate between large, uppercase letters that seem to be made of fur and words in a smaller, not-too-perfect typeface, are clear and easy to read. The book's design-narrow rectangles with plenty of white space-amplifies each featured word and makes it appropriate for building vocabulary. On each page, Clayton surrounds the text with miniature sketches of objects that begin with the featured letter-"H is for Happy to see you today" is paired with a horse, horn, hippo, hamster, harp, etc. The text verges on the trite ("E is for Everything under the sun") and is sometimes nonsensical ("T is for Talking and teaching and trees"), but there's no denying the positive, kid-centric appeal. The attractive illustrations and accessible design make A Is for Awesome a fun addition for most collections.—Nora Clancy, Teachers College Community School, New York City

—School Library Journal
In keeping with the irreverently inspirational attitude of his previous work, Clayton provides an alphabet of affirmations... [T]he big, furry-looking font and playful miniature images... lend Clayton's work a Haight-Ashbury vibe that should gel with free-spirited kids.
Engagingly simple... [T]he feel-good tone is catching, and the sentiments make fertile discussion fodder.

This is a fun and quirky abc book. It feels like it was drawn by a friend and it simultaneously has the heart of a kid with the love of a parent. Full of colors and all sorts of little things to look for - it's a nice addition to other Clayton must haves ( An Awesome Book, An Awesome Book of Thanks, An Awesome Book of Love, Lily the Unicorn, Make Magic Do Good, and for the adults the wonderful It's Never Too Late)
I thought at first that perhaps Mr. Clayton was being clever, putting ONE item that didn't start with an A, but that didn't seem to be the case for B or C. I am giving this to my 5 year old grandson for his birthday. Can't wait to confuse him, too! Please help, someone!
