Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In a starred review, PW wrote, "With a tip of her hat to such '60s icons as Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg, Isadora whips out a zinger of an ABC book. Baby boomers will find this artistic homage a nostalgic hoot, while their offspring will appreciate its verve." Ages 3-8. (Aug.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Isadora is a gifted artist of many styles, but in this clever alphabet book she has chosen to pay homage to the pop art world of the sixties. Her Warhol-ish pigs are a sly tribute to the master of multiple-images, while her gas tank and car with air-brushed exhaust give lively praise to Lichtenstein. Toddlers will enjoy the bold colors, while super-cool parents can groove on big name connections.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 5Isadora, whose impressionistic-style images have beguiled many a reader, turns her hand to pop art in this exuberant alphabet book. In a tribute to Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Claes Oldenburg, she matches letter with object in imaginative ways that are right on a childs wavelength. B, for example, finds King Kong heading up the Empire State Building, H showcases three plump hot dogs (each with a different topping), N sports a long-nosed Pinocchio, U finds an umpire calling safe as a player slides into base, and Y consists of a series of swinging yo-yos. The artist carefully varies the pages: some are double-page spreads, such as W, where a spider crawls over a large but fragile-looking web; others repeat an image, such as P, which features four pigs in either blue, olive, lavender, or pink, all shaded with black dots in comic-book style. The energy and bright colors will captivate young viewers; for older readers, this could make a great lead-in to Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordans The Painters Eye (Delacorte, 1994).Barbara Elleman, Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Simultaneously complex and unpretentious, this alphabet book deserves a long shelf life.
The Horn Book Magazine
Kirkus Reviews
Pop art has a lot of built-in appeal: swathes of color that nearly vibrate in their intensity; unambiguous shapes and lines; forms reduced and flattened into vivid patterns. Isadora has taken these tenets and produced an homage to pop art—to the works of Roy Lichtenstein above all others—in an alphabet book that is at once both retro and modern. The text is minimal, with one letter represented by one word through the alphabet. The palette of images, however, is eye-catching and bears multiple viewings gracefully. Some letters have double-page spreads, such as "T Train" with its gleaming gray Santa Fe engine in the orange desert with a huge sun, a lemon-yellow sky, and green saguaros. Others, such as "K Kitchen" are a series of small cropped views on a single page: readers glimpse the spout of a red kettle, most of a green toaster, a bisected view of dishwashing detergent. Occasionally, a single image fills the page, as in the playing card for "Q Queen." The pages are satisfying, visually stimulating, and fun. (Picture book. 3-8)
