Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1—This picture book combines animals with musical instruments. "A is for alliguitar, who has his own picks./B is for banjaguar, who plays some hot licks," and so on. The rhyming text is an invitation to children and caregivers to have a conversation about what animals or musical instruments the youngsters think they see, and it makes for a fun read-aloud. The creatures in the colorful, detailed illustrations have delightful facial expressions, and the letters are prominently displayed. A creative alternative to the standard ABC.—Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH
