From Publishers Weekly:

Chwast's distinctive, poster-styled art is well suited to children's books: his subjects are simply and boldly delineated; his palette is vivid and cheery. This alphabet procession, however, is somewhat uninspired--many of the representative images will be familiar to browsers of the overflowing shelves of abecedarian books. There are intriguing twists here, though, that raise several entries above the commonplace: the ice cream cone and the old-fashioned telephone have legs, the zoo rides on a float (to enable them to take part in the parade). Other pictures may confuse youngsters: children just learning their ABC's might not realize that the instrumentalists on the J spread are part of a jazz band, or that R 's football player is a receiver . (A word list at the end of the book helps.) Youngsters should enjoy relating the spectators--in a horizontal row at the bottom of each spread--to particular letters, as a goose and a gaucho watch the G section and pet owners hold a koala and kitten up to enjoy the K group. All in all, this may be more of a treat for Chwast's adult fans than for the ABC crowd. Ages 4-7.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- A festive, colorful, and offbeat alphabetical parade romps through and off the pages of this wordless book. Spectators, pictured in the foreground, hold appropriate props or do something inspired by the letter passing before them. The featured letter is incorporated into the page design that is filled with both usual and unique paraders. A listing of pictured items is appended, although it's not complete; young eyes may discover more in this book not unlike Handford's Where's Waldo? (Little, 1987), but less cluttered and not as garishly hued. A clever volume that may stimulate discussion. --Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library
