9780152015459: The Accidental Zucchini: An Unexpected Alphabet

In Max Grover’s zany alphabet book, ordinary objects become fresh and new, while the extraordinary suddenly look familiar. Chew the fat with a neighbor over your Fork Fence! Ride the Macaroni Merry-go-round for the twirl of your life! And, heavens, hope for sunshine if you’re wearing your Umbrella Underwear! “A funny, loopy variation of a standard, bound to inspire youngsters to whip up their own weird wordings.”--Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

No Bio

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-A wacky alphabet book with the best line on the cover. The clever title describes a wonderfully crazy world in which zucchini crop up everywhere. Readers see airplanes, cars, fences, gumballs, jewelry, and even road signs made from the ubiquitous green vegetable. From "apple antics" to "octopus overalls" and "ice cream island" to "sailor salad," children are treated to a humorous word game that doesn't go anywhere. There is no plot, no point. The text is merely a description of the illustrations. This is not a beginner's alphabet book, as there are no examples of uppercase and lowercase letters, and there isn't enough here for older readers. The colorful, vibrant acrylic paintings are crisp and lively. Reminiscent of Mark Teague's style, these are funny, clever, artsy pictures that make adults chuckle but won't do much for children. Librarians can skip this unless there is a demand for off-the-wall alphabet books.
