9781596436763: A Is for Musk Ox

Musk Ox, our rambunctious anti-hero, literally chews through the cover of this anarchic alphabet book. Having eaten the apple that A was supposed to be for, he blithely inserts himself, claiming A is for Musk Ox―because musk oxen are Awesome and live in the Arctic, which includes Alaska! Zebra, his nemesis, is less than thrilled.

And so this cantankerous couple lead the reader on a romp through the alphabet with Musk Ox claiming every letter for himself, and Zebra doing his level best to keep him under control. Filled with Matthew Myers's hilarious artwork with lots of hidden details for kids to explore, this may be the funniest alphabet book ever created.

About the Author:

T is for Erin Cabatingan because she has Three children, Two cats, and when she was eleven, a Telephone pole fell on her house. She and her family have lived all over the United States from California to New York to Hawaii and she looks forward to wherever life takes her next. A Is for Musk Ox is her first book.

W is for Matthew Myers because he is constantly asking "Why?" almost as much as when he was a kid. "Why do zebras wear neckties but not socks? Why is there a double-u but not a triple-u? Why would anyone clog dance on purpose?" This is Matthew's second book for Roaring Brook Press. Matthew lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 4-A self-involved musk ox and a practical zebra argue their way through this book that pairs each letter with adjectives that can describe or nouns that list characteristics of the musk ox. Written entirely in dialogic exchanges and illustrated in oil on board, with clever collagelike correction tape over the more common alphabet words (apple, baby, clown), the book makes its way from A to Z. The musk ox declares himself awesome, brown, and cool (also, living in Canada). The apple is eaten, "baby" covered over, and the clown shivers in the cold. At the end, Z is for Zebra, our zebra, who is shown posing in an embarrassing photograph of him as a baby. Children will find the dialogue hilarious, and teachers will be able to encourage student re-writes. Read this along with Nick Bruel's Bad Kitty (Roaring Brook, 2005) for older wordsmiths. For younger students, pair it with Mike Lester's A Is for Salad (Grosset & Dunlap, 2000) and Mary Etling and Michael Folsom's classic Q Is for Duck (Clarion, 1980) for some higher-order alphabet guessing games.-Lisa Egly Lehmuller, St. Patrick's Catholic School, Charlotte, NCα(c) Copyright 2011.
