From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3 Aster Aardvark, who ``had an aversion to the alphabet'' but achieved an ``amazing aptitude for aerial alphabetical acrobatics,'' skywrites letters as she propels her plane across many pages of Kellogg's alphabet book. These illustrations are Kellogg at his best. The pages overflow with his sensational, cavorting cartoon characters embroiled in sublimely ridiculous situations. Accompanying each page or two of illustration is a tongue twister of an explanation using the featured letter in a flow of alliterative nonsense. Complex vocabulary flows freely, and herein lies the problem. Older readers may delight in the bizarre banter, but they will feel that the illustrations are for children much younger. As a preschool picture book, however, pity the poor parents perplexed by the preposterous paradigms of prose which they must paraphrase to appease their prodigious progeny.
