Review

"The pen-and-ink watercolor master adds a colorful palette to his classic book of letter and number puzzles." --Publishers Weekly

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!

We want our children to be thinkers. Here is a book that does that. It uses the alphabet letters to form associated words opening up the mind to all the possibilities. I taught at risk students at a poverty school. One of the number one items I used to show them how wonderfully made their brain was. Once they caught on I truly can say they viewed learning entirely differently and started making up their own word play.

I always keep some on hand. Make great gifts for just about anyone. This one and CDB both went to a 75 year old woman in the hospital. Gave another set to a dentist who gone out of his way to give me special service. Everybody from age 4 to 104 love these two books.

Formatted like a children's picture book with drawings more appealing to adults, I think. Oh, such fun to figure out the coded captions under each drawing. I have enjoyed this book over and over for decades and have given many copies as gifts! Be sure to check out other books by the late, great William Steig.

Such a great book. A good companion to the first one, "CDB?". I purchased hardcovers of each for my 5th Grade classroom, and also for our 2nd Grade reading buddies. Kids in that whole age span (all the way through adult really) love these books!

My daughter and I discovered this book when she was eight years old. We had to pull our car over to read it because we were laughing so hard. She is now 35, and I couldn't believe it when I found it through Amazon. I ordered 6 copies and have found them to be great gifts for any age.

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!
