Everybody has a job to do, and so does the letter Z. But when the workday's done, Z goes home. On the way Z must pass an Alien, a Bridge, a Cake, and 22 other 'characters,' each of them suggesting a familiar shape in Jon Agee's delightful illustrations. After running into a Viper by a Woodpile, some Xeroxes, and a Yoga master, Z does arrive home, finally. Home sweet home, where Z fits right in. JON AGEE is the author/illustrator of The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau (an ALA Notable), The Return of Freddy Legrand (an SLJ Best Book), and Dmitri the Astronaut, each chosen by The New York Times as one of the ten best picture books of the year. He has also created six popular books of wordplay, among them Go Hang a Salami! I'm a Lasagna Hog! He lives in San Francisco.

About the Author:

Jon Agee is the author/illustrator of The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau (an ALA Notable), The Return of Freddy Legrand (an SLJ Best Book), and Dmitri the Astronaut, each chosen by The New York Times as one of the ten best picture books of the year. He has also created six popular books of wordplay, among them Go Hang a Salami! I’m a Lasagna Hog! He lives in San Francisco.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. The letter Z abandons its allotted spot in the City Zoo sign and heads off in Agee's innovative alphabet book. Children can track the red Z's journey past an Alien, over a Bridge, into some Cake, and over Hurdles until the red-letter moment when it finally finds its way to its similarly colored friends and announces, "Hey everybody, I'm home!" Each letter is exemplified by a noun (Ink, Jetty, Karate), but to make matters more interesting, the object is also shaped like the letter: a round cake, partially eaten by the Z, forms a C; the labyrinth where Z gets lost is composed of Ls; and the seashore, where Z is taking a dip, is S-shaped. The very last page whimsically defines the 26 words. In most alphabet books, letters follow one after the other and children know what's coming next, but this is less predictable. Bold shapes and lines create a clean, comical look. Karin Snelson
