Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Children will find much to enjoy and explore in this lift-the-flap introduction to the alphabet. On each spread, two large uppercase letters are presented before gradually morphing through three shape-shifting boxes into a creature whose name begins with that letter. For example, the A becomes an alligator, and B transforms into a beaver. Many are easily recognized (duck, fish, moose) by the preschool set with a few more exotic (lemur, uta lizard) as well as an extinct (xiaosaurus) added to the mix. Janovitz's colorful creatures will have great appeal to youngsters and keep them engaged while they are learning their letters. The book would work nicely one-on-one or with a group of children in a storyhour setting.-Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Here Janovitz elaborates an idea that rightly helped Suze Macdonald earn a Caldecott Honor for Alphabatics (1986): Each letter of the alphabet transforms over four bright, simple cartoon panels into an animal ("A" to an "Alligator," "B" to a "Beaver," etc.). But the final panel, being hidden under a flap, gives this change an extra dimension by turning it into a guessing game. In several cases, however, she doesn't play fair; despite several visual cues, first time viewers don't stand much chance of figuring out "Lemur," for instance, not to mention "Uta lizard," or "Xiaosaurus." Still, unlike Joose Goffin's surrealistic Oh! (1991) and its sequels, this does provide an occasional opportunity for successful deduction, along with an enticing invitation to play with sequences and familiar shapes. (Picture book. 3-6)
