Quentin Blake is one of today's most popular and best-loved children's illustrators. He has won the Whitbread Award, the Kate Greenaway Medal, and the Emil/Kurt Maschler Award, among numerous others.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- With its rhyming text and hilarious watercolors, this oversized alphabet book is sure to charm the socks off young children. "A is for Apples, some green and some red/ B is for Breakfast we're having in bed." This rhythmic movement flows throughout the text, with the rhymes creating scenes of great fun, such as "L is for Legs that we wave in the the air," with an illustration of an adult and three children all standing on their heads. Every letter offers a good chuckle, some even an outburst of laughter, as Blake invites his readers to giggle over his crazy characters and detailed artwork, splashed on the page in his usual lighthearted manner. A sure delight for all young children, and an important addition to the concept book arena. --Leslie Barban, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC
