Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
It's the ABCs with a large dose of humor and pizzazz. Starting with a line of ants marching with American flags, the text moves through the alphabet and features a horse on a house, penguins in parachutes, and closes with a zebra playing a zither. For each letter, there is a statement that features an animal or a person with an object that begins with the same letter. The illustrations in this silly, sturdy board book are really amusing. Part of the "Bright and Early Board Books" series. 2000 (orig. 1974), Random House,
From the Publisher
"The zaniest, most hilarious alphabet book ever."—Baby Talk Magazine.

Meet the Author

P. D. EASTMAN was an author-illustrator who created many children’s books, including Are You My Mother?, Go, Dog. Go!, and The Best Nest. Trained at the National Academy of Design, he was working for Walt Disney Productions and Warner Brothers Cartoons before he enlisted in the army in 1943 and was assigned to the Signal Corps Film Unit—which was headed by Theodor Geisel, who would eventually become known to the world as Dr. Seuss. After Geisel later approached him to write for his new Beginner Book series at Random House, Eastman published his first book, Sam and the Firefly. Since then, Random House has sold over thirty million books by P. D. Eastman, and he has become one of the most beloved children’s book authors in the world.

    Nothing fancy but ok

    I was looking for a simple letter book for my 2 year old, and you don't get more basic than this. Helps her associate the letter with the illustration and short caption anyway.
