Title: THE ALPHABET’S ALPHABET
Author: Chris Harris & Dan Santat (Illustrator)
Pub. Date: September 29, 2020
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
For fans of P is for Pterodactyl comes this groundbreaking spin on the ABC’s from an acclaimed, bestselling author and artist pairing!
Here’s a totally twisted take on the alphabet that invites readers to look at it in a whole new way: An A is an H that just won’t stand up right, a B is a D with its belt on too tight, and a Z is an L in a tug-of-war fight! Twenty-six letters, unique from each other — and yet, every letter looks just like one another! Kind of like…one big family.
From two bestselling masters of wordplay and visual high jinks comes a mind-bending riddle of delightful doppelgängers and surprising disguises that reveal we’re more alike than we may think. You’ll never look at the alphabet the same way again!
This is a really fun book that explains to children just learning their ABCs and how to read and write using them learns how the letters are all connected. It also gives a clue on how to write them as well. I love “B is just a D with a belt on too tight”. I found it humorous and it didn’t follow any typical ABC book. The rhymes are all spot on and easy to pick up for new readers. This is a book that can grow with a child.
