Achoo! Bang! Crash!: The Noisy Alphabet

Achoo! Bang! Crash!: The Noisy Alphabet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A for . . . Achoo?

B for Bump, Bang, and Bop?

C for Crackle, Clank, and Crunch?

This is truly an alphabet with attitude, created by that master of raucous humor, Ross MacDonald. In this hilarious book you'll see clothes ripped off an intrepid game hunter by a ferocious lion (ROAR! RIP! RUN!); a little boy who manages to pin the tail on his father, rather than the donkey. (NO! OH! OOPS! OW!); and an exceedingly plump Santa being crammed down the chimney (JINGLE! JINGLE! JINGLE!).

But wait! There's more! All the words in this book where set in 19th-century wood type and printed in blazing color on a handpress, creating extraordinary visual effects. An endnote accompanied by photographs describes the process and serves as a fascinating introduction to a disappearing craft

Synopsis:

With attitude and raucous humor, MacDonald has created a hilarious alphabet picture book using onomatopoeia and interjections to create a very noisy alphabet. Full color.

Synopsis:

Achoo! Bang! Crash! presents a raucous alphabet.
