For fans of P is for Pterodactyl comes this groundbreaking spin on the ABCs from an acclaimed bestselling author and artist duo
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 doppelgangers and surprising disguises that reveal we're more alike than we may think. You'll never look at the alphabet the same way again!
"Harris's versifying nails rhyme and meter, and Santat's endless stream of energy delivers one over-the-top gag after another." Publishers Weekly
"This delightfully entertaining alphabet book stands out in a very crowded field...Charming opening and closing poems explain that letters are all interrelated, just as members of the human family are." Kirkus Reviews
