Review:

Kipper and his little friend Arnold are on an alphabet search. It all starts when the young pig Arnold finds an ant. "Aa is for ant. And Arnold." Well, to be perfectly honest, it starts a little earlier, before the book even officially begins, when Kipper the pudgy brown dog tells a zebra, "We won't need you till much, much later." Throughout, as Kipper and Arnold find (and sometimes lose) a buzzing bumblebee, a caterpillar (actually, the caterpillar finds them), a duck, and a menagerie of other alphabetized critters, the earnestly eager zebra appears, ever hopeful that his day in the sun has arrived. "Nn is for No, not now!" Kipper tells him. After "Juice...And a bit of jam, too," "Splish! Splosh! Splash! And six squishy slugs," and V, which is "very, very hard" (when they can't find a volcano, they make a picture of one instead), the zebra asks one last time. "Is it my turn? Is it? Is it?" Kipper is happy to report, "Yy is for Yes!" The zebra stands proudly in the middle of the page, and everyone says, "Zz is for Zebra!"

Mick Inkpen's enchanting Kipper stories can be found on TV's Nick Jr. and in his many picture books (Kipper, Kipper's Birthday, Kipper's Snowy Day, and lots more). This Alphabet Adventure, with its adorable details and witty subplots, is sure to win hordes of new fans. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter
