Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up—Some books do not belong in board-book format and this wonderful volume is a prime example. The verses linked to each letter of the alphabet refer to elements in the beloved books by Lewis Carroll, but those books are well beyond the ken of board-book audiences. Here's a small sample of the sort of vocabulary Kontis uses in her text: "compliant," "deciphered," "guile," and "hindrance." While the verses and illustrations display sophisticated wit, it is not the sort of humor that sends two-year-olds into fits of giggles, and those who would enjoy the book won't touch it. Altogether, this is the sort of production to make us wonder, "What were they thinking?"—Miriam Lang Budin, Chappaqua Library, NY
