9780763656867: AlphaOops: H Is for Halloween: Midi Edition

H gets top billing — but a stubborn B has something scary to say — as the inside-out alphabet gives a howl-arious Halloween performance.

Ack! It’s time for the show, and A isn’t ready. But then again, Halloween can only start with one letter, no matter how the A-B-Cs normally go! The misbehaving alphabet is back, and there’s no telling who will take the stage next. Z for zombie? P for pirate? Will X think of something good in time? Neon-bright, comically detailed illustrations show a cacophony of costumed letters, each with a mind and personality all its own. Along the bottom, tiny pumpkins arrange the players in proper order, making this alphabet story letter-perfect for Halloween.

About the Author:

Alethea Kontis is a princess, fairy godmother and geek. She is the author of the bestselling and award-winning Books of Arilland fairy tale series. She has also dabbled in picture books, poetry, essays, online video rants and making horror movies. Princess Alethea lives on the Space Coast of Florida with her teddy bear, Charlie.

Bob Kolar is the illustrator of the first AlphaOops book and the author-illustrator of BIG KICKS. He lives in Lee's Summit, Missouri.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3–In this sequel to AlphaOops! The Day Z Went First (Candlewick, 2006), Kontis and Kolar reintroduce readers to their cast of alphabet players. The book begins with the letter Z directing the letter H to start the show because, “Halloween can't start with any other letter.” Appearing entirely out of sequence, the individual letters then make brief appearances dressed up as characters that begin with their respective letters: “Z is for zombie. N is for nightmare.” The tentative letter B attempts to shine, but he continually encounters problems; at one point his buccaneer costume is taken by P (Pirate) and in another scene a blackbird sits on his head. B perseveres and steals the show by delivering the final line of the play, “B is for...BOO!” Kontis's text is rhythmic and comical, and readers who are comfortable with the alphabet will delight in the silliness of this story. Kolar's illustrations are imbued with a sense of nighttime theater magic, and the slightly muted jewel-tone hues set the scene perfectly. A winsome union of humorous text and art, this light, fresh book is an ideal addition to holiday collections.Shawn Brommer, South Central Library System, Madison, WI
