Alpha OOPS!: H Is for Halloween

Alpha OOPS!: H Is for Halloween Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

H gets top billing — but a stubborn B has something scary to say — as the inside-out alphabet gives a howl-arious Halloween performance.

Ack! Its time for the show, and A isnt ready. But then again, Halloween can only start with one letter, no matter how the A-B-Cs normally go! The misbehaving alphabet is back, and theres no telling who will take the stage next. Z for zombie? P for pirate? Will X think of something good in time? Neon-bright, comically detailed illustrations show a cacophony of costumed letters, each with a mind and personality all its own. Along the bottom, tiny pumpkins arrange the players in proper order, making this alphabet story letter-perfect for Halloween.

Review:

"In a raucous follow-up to AlphaOops! The Day Z Went First, chaos ensues when the letters of the alphabet put on a disorderly stage production about Halloween. Z insists that H kick things off, and the letters show off their costumes--G is a goblin, V a vampire--except for B, whose buccaneer and blackbird ideas are stolen by P (a pirate) and C (a crow). The letters appear in correct order along the bottom of the pages, but with a surplus of witty asides, the emphasis is on fun. Ages 4 — 8. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
