About this title


Large brilliant paintings make this witty alphabet book unlike any before!

What is A? Two ants tiptoeing across an alligator's snout.What is B? A bold brown bear and a flirtatious butterfly.What is C? Cool cats in a pink convertible.What is FLORA MCDONNELL'S ABC? An exuberant introduction to the alphabet that explodes with the color, wit, and energy of an exciting new artist. With each letter illustrated twice--once capitalized and once lowercased--this ABC book welcomes young children to the world of words and letters, clearly and brilliantly.


Imagine hearing that tiny, alphabet-reciting toddler in your lap coming to the letter I and blurting, "I is for IBIS." This is how you'll know that Flora McDonnell's ABC is somewhere in the vicinity. In a sea of colorful alphabet books, McDonnell's may be one of the most marvelously unusual. Yet the quirkiness in no way takes away from the value of the book as a learning tool; indeed, with its bold upper- and lowercase letters, full-bleed illustrations, and combination of large and small items on each page, this little board book is matchless. For "Tt," a stately (capitalized) TIGER reposes, with a (lowercase) teapot sitting absurdly on his head. Four cats cruise (oh so cool!) in a sleek red convertible CAR for "Cc." A tiny ladybug perches on a fat, vivid LEMON for "Ll." McDonnell's splashy colors will wow every reader, and the youngest ones will pick up the rudiments of the ABCs (not to mention some impressive vocabulary, too!) in no time. A true original from the creator of I Love Animals and Splash! (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter
