From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Learning the correct sequence of the letters is usually considered a necessary part of memorizing the alphabet, but here readers have an ABC that begins with the iguanas who come in their pajamas, ends with a cow that is mooing anyhow, and has 24 other critters sandwiched in-between, in no particular order. Colorful endpapers do provide the standard lineup from A to Z. Alphabetical jingles and jump-rope-type rhymes describe the antics of the bumptious and rowdy birds, beasts, and insects that descend upon a little girl's breakfast table in the interval between Mom's appearance in bathrobe and slippers and her reappearance a few minutes later as a smartly dressed professional woman. Young listeners and readers alike will enjoy following the amazing activities from page to page, the surprising comings and goings through the open window, and the unpredictable events taking place within the pictures on the walls. Bright, bold, busy, and innovative. --Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

From Publishers Weekly:

Billing itself somewhat coyly as a "scrambled alphabet book to be read at breakfast," this ABC book is not so easy to figure out. In each spread--the same scene throughout--a girl is eating breakfast and an animal enters, accompanied by a verse ("the Dragonfly, the dragonfly / sprinkles salt as she flies by"; "the Monkey, the monkey / dabs my egg with chutney"). The initial letters are in random order, but the real difficulty here lies in figuring out which animal is which, as the room fills up with a chaotic assortment of animals engaged in various rhyming activities. There is much to look at, though, and Zimmer's ( The Sky is Full of Song ; In a Dark, Dark Room & Other Scary Stories ) cartoony illustrations are full of vitality. Ages 4-9.
