Product Details

Praise

Boutavant’s bright, large-scale illustrations are filled with delightful details, and Bear’s overwrought reactions are positively loony. This is a perfect vehicle for reading aloud or reading together over and over with lots of opportunities for highly expressive emoting and giggles galore. Goofy, hilarious, laugh-out-loud fun for all.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Bear had planned to walk readers through “a simple alphabet book.” But this admirable intention is put aside as he instead searches for the nefarious thief…It is evident from the brown smudges on his face and some very cagey behavior that McLaughlin’s (The Hug) narrator is both unreliable and unrepentant, but Bear brazenly plows ahead, and digital vignettes by Boutavant (the Ariol series), set against white backgrounds in the style of a midcentury primer, make the melodramatic interrogations of other alphabet representatives all the funnier.
