Graphically bold and colorful, ALTERNATIVE ABCs is a great new addition to our growing line of ABC books. 

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Parmley and Ruffing, the team behind graphic design firm 13th Floor, offer an alphabet board book that screams punk rock, not primer. The tone is set from the first page. “A is for axe,” and the word is rendered in a font ready for a Megadeth album, above an electric guitar with hellfire and amps in the background. Yet despite hardcore entries like camo, graffiti, and mohawk, the book has a kinder, Berkeley-style alternative streak, too--Earth Day, unity, and yoga, to name a few. Ages 2–up. (Aug.)
From the Publisher
"Kids will think the ABCs are super cool after seeing these graffiti-inspired designs. 'L' is for lowrider (and LOL!)." —Parenting Magazine

"This totally sick board book is ready made for rock star parents and their cool little future guitarists and skateboarders. B is for Bear? No way. It's for Boombox. M is for Mohawk, I is for Ink, and S is for Skull." —Cool Mom Picks
