Overview

In this exuberant companion volume to ABC POP!, which reviewers called "dazzling" and "one of the sassiest, most fun alphabet books ever"(Copley News Service), Rachel Isadora once again combines an amusing homage to pop art masters such as Lichtenstein, Warhol, and Oldenburg with a sure knowledge of the images children find appealing. From one man on the moon to ten lizards to a million stars Rachel Isadora ingeniously reinterprets numbers in a pop style for the millennium.

"Satisfying, visually stimulating and fun."—Kirkus Reviews on ABC POP!

"Baby boomers will find this artistic homage a nostalgic hoot, while their offspring will appreciate its verve."—Publishers Weekly on ABC POP!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This companion to ABC Pop! (Viking, 1999) is too chaotic and visually puzzling to be an effective counting book, and the format will not appeal to older comic-book readers and would-be cartoonists. Pages show one astronaut, two goldfish-and continue counting by ones to 20 worker ants, then 100 dogs, 500 lit windows, 1000 jellybeans, and 1,000,000 stars. The pop-art illustrations certainly grab viewers' attention; dialogue balloons and superheroes on the cover are a preview to what's inside. Some illustrations are reminiscent of Andy Warhol's prints of the same figure repeated in different tones; others appear to be influenced by the faceless, stylized primary-colored figures of Keith Haring. In addition, eight comic-book multiethnic superheroes of both genders soar over a double-page center, while another spread is covered with the "Bam!," "Boom," "Blam," and "Splat" balloons familiar to comic-book readers. The few quieter illustrations-glowing Christmas lights, a nighttime cityscape, a starlit sky-seem almost overwhelmed by the brighter pictures, and a few pages appear so assertive in color and so crowded in detail as to confound young children.-Marian Drabkin, Richmond Public Library, CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
