Mischievous, fun, and furry creatures return to learn the alphabet in this rollicking board book companion to the classic favorite, One Hungry Monster!, featuring a die-cut "bite" throughout the book



Watch out! The ten naughty visitors from the bestselling One Hungry Monster counting book have escaped! When they sneak into school, will they sit quietly at their desks to study? Not a chance! As a young boy tries to teach his unusual classmates (and keep himself out of trouble), the alphabet comes to life in a mischievously monstrous way. Though the lesson starts out innocently, soon the desks get soaked in bubbles, they bring the trampoline into the classroom, and the most difficult letters in the alphabet (X, Y & Z) are visited by an X-ray man, a yeti, and a zombie. This hilarious classroom rumpus is A-B-C-Dee-lightful!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 2
When the creatures from One Hungry Monster (Little, Brown, 1989) visit a boy's classroom, he attempts to teach them the alphabet using school words like "apple," "book," and "crayon." But the monsters make a mess of everything, piling up the books so they can draw on the ceiling with the crayons. Things go downhill from there as the furry critters continue to cause mayhem, gulping down their sloppy sandwiches ("L is always lunchtime"), having a pillow fight ("R should be for rest time"), and chasing the teacher ("T is for Ms. Tubbins"). The narrator is at a loss for X, Y, and Z words-until his visitors call their friends X-Ray man, a yeti, and a zombie. The rhyming story ends rather abruptly with the monsters and the protagonist escaping through a window, but Ms. Tubbins grabs the boy's shoe and hauls him back in. Munsinger's watercolor-and-ink illustrations are reliably funny, and kids will giggle at the sight of the put-upon youngster trying to wrangle the monsters into order. The alphabet concept is almost secondary to the creatures' antics, though the entry and picture for W are priceless: "'W's for Wiffle ball./(In gym they'll show you how.)'/But Wiffles aren't waffles./The monsters know that now." A set of removable alphabet flashcards featuring the characters is included.

Kirkus Reviews
Ten undisciplined monsters visit school to learn their ABCs. A little boy reading at his desk finds himself surrounded by little furry creatures with pointed teeth, long tails and rhino-like horns. The alphabet lessons are embedded in the ample rhyming narrative. The boy begins his instruction with apple and book and crayon and desk, all items close at hand. But the mischievous monsters have other ideas, turning the classroom upside-down with an experiment (E). The little boy gets into the swing, until the antics of the monsters wear him out with jumping jacks (J) and such. They even chase the teacher, Mrs. Tubbins (T). Surprise visitors provide the X, Y & Z, just before Mrs. Tubbins chases all of the monster away with . . . homework! Refreshingly, the story stands on its own, and Munsinger's ink-and-watercolor illustrations make the monsters adorable. Bonus: a pack of alphabet flash cards. (Picture book. 3-6)
