9780152163433: The Absolutely Awful Alphabet

The alphabet never looked this way before. These letters have drippy noses, scratchy hair, and green teeth. They belch and drool, and stick out their tongues. Zany art gives each letter a spectacular new personality, and the humorous, alliterative text is sure to stretch young readers’ vocabularies.

Review:

Suppose each letter in the alphabet were some ghoulish creep. ("A is an awfully arrogant Amphibian...") And suppose each ensuing letter, nastier than the last, was about to attack, or get attacked by, one of its neighbors. ("P, a particularly putrid Predator ... plans to pulverize Q, a quivering, quizzical Quacker...") You'd have the delightfully spooky and suspenseful version of the alphabet that is Mordicai Gerstein's The Absolutely Awful Alphabet. Alphabet lessons have never been so slimy, ugly, nasty, or just plain weird, and Gerstein's illustrations strike just the right tone. With their blue tongues, frizzy black nose hairs, pointy fangs, and slit eyes, these letters are wonderfully terrible to behold. The best of the worst? V, a "voracious vegetable vampire who is viciously vile." Warning: You'll never look at an ear of corn the same way again. (Ages 5 and older) --Jean Lenihan
