In Max Grover’s zany alphabet book, ordinary objects become fresh and new, while the extraordinary suddenly look familiar. Chew the fat with a neighbor over your Fork Fence! Ride the Macaroni Merry-go-round for the twirl of your life! And, heavens, hope for sunshine if you’re wearing your Umbrella Underwear! “A funny, loopy variation of a standard, bound to inspire youngsters to whip up their own weird wordings.”—Publishers Weekly

Each letter of the alphabet is represented by an unusual combination of objects, such as "fork fence," "octopus overalls," and "umbrella underwear."

    This is our second copy

    Our daughter loved this book to pieces... literally. This book single handedly kept her occupied on a plane trip. She only just turned two, and we are getting our second copy today. I love this book for its unique view of the world (personal favorites include dog dance, elephant elevator, goldfish grandstand, vegetable volcano...) and it's beautiful illustrations. Any parent who has ever read the same book a hundred times to their child(ren) knows the joy of finding a book that can appeal to adults as well as toddlers.
