Welcome to my silly dilly
take on ABC
It's lots of fun and really odd,
as you will quickly see

For they're no "leaping lizards" here
No "bears that bounce a ball"
In fact, these zany critters have
never been seen at all!

So turn the page and cast a gaze
on this menagerie,
but don't forget the beasts within
were all made up by me!

-- Tiny DiTerlooney

About the Author:

Tony DiTerlizzi is a New York Times bestselling author and illustrator who has been creating books with Simon & Schuster for fifteen years. From his fanciful picture books like Jimmy Zangwow’s Out-of-this-World Moon Pie Adventure, Adventure of Meno (with his wife, Angela), and The Spider & The Fly (a Caldecott Honor book), to chapter books like Kenny and The Dragon and The Search for WondLa, Tony always imbues his stories with a rich imagination. His middle grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles (with Holly Black), has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film, and has been translated in more than thirty countries. You can visit him at DiTerlizzi.com.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–This clever and sophisticated tribute to two icons of nonsensical rhyme, Dr. Seuss and Edward Lear, will surprise and amuse. From the Angry Ack who eats dirty clothes to the Zanderiffic Zibble Zook, who loves to read dictionaries, these fantastic creatures defy expectations. The Bloobytack, who collects objects on his sticky back, assures, I know what you're thinking, but that's not a BOOT, it's a SHOE so no B's here. In fact, none of the illustrations seem to have anything to do with their respective letters. Each spread features a letter, a corresponding Seuss-like creachling and its rhyme, and a comical cartoon portrait of the author. Several pages into the story, the Teedle-Weenie Woo, potatolike, brightly colored digits, join the fun. They insist on counting, be it 7 stars, 90 laps, or, in the case of the Uggle-Unk, 3 stripes in his underwear./Thank goodness, none are brown. Amid the laughs, children are ingeniously exposed to colors, numbers, and letters. The pen-and-ink illustrations of the creachlings are colored digitally, each in a different hue, in imitation of picture books of the '40s and '50s. The author and the Woos are painted in gouache with prismacolor-pencil details. The former–skinny and boyish with jeans, yellow T-shirt, sneakers, round glasses, and unruly red hair–imitates and interacts with his creations on every page, clearly having just as much fun as his readers. Handsomely designed, this wacky wonder will wow Woos of all ages.–Barbara Auerbach, New York City Public Schools
