About this title

Synopsis:

Anything goes in this wordless alphabet book of creative and zany pictures. Each page features a letter of the alphabet in a tableau of things that begin with that letter-people, places, animals, and even actions! In addition, little mice helpers are hidden in the pictures, while another mouse diligently lines up letters at the bottom of the page-especially helpful for young readers learning their ABC's. Children and adults alike will be challenged and delighted by Brad Sneed's beautiful illustrations done in watercolor and black-and-white pencil. And for those who get stumped, there's a word key at the back of the book.

From Publishers Weekly:

A veritable feast for the eye, this inventive abecedary is crammed with visual delights. Sneed (Smoky Mountain Rose) blends paints and pencils for a series of tantalizing spreads chock-full of letter-coded objects. A quick scan of the "A" page, for instance, immediately reveals an acrobat, airplane and alligator, but a closer look uncovers an angelfish, argyle socks, accordion, etc. Most of the objects are in black-and-white, which provides a stimulating contrast to each page's central representative object, rendered in color and shaped to form the letter itself. Thus a caterpillar is bent in a C-curve, while the bill of a cap and the arm of a fisherman form the twin prongs of the letter F. Sneed shoehorns in plenty of humor with puckish caricatures and silly situations (a lady who lunches holds a leashed lion). Except for a key at the back, the book is wordless, helping the book transcend age ranges. It offers equal enjoyment for those newly acquainted with the alphabet and for the well-versed (who will find plenty to challenge them, including "vaccinate," "monarch," "goslings," "ibis" and "uvula"). Youngest readers will have fun spotting the mouse at the bottom of each page, who pulls a wagon carrying each of the letters. Ages 4-up.
