K Is for Kissing a Cool Kangaroo by Giles Andreae, Guy Parker-Rees
This unique and boldly colorful alphabet book is now available in Scholastic Bookshelf paperback!
"K is for kissing a cool kangaroo, L is for loving, like Daddy loves you, M is for mischievous monkey and mat, N is for naughty and 'No, don't do that!'" This picture book puts a new twist on the alphabet with Andreae's fun-filled descriptions for each letter and Parker-Rees's clever illustrations. The page "G is for giant, whose garden grows wild" depicts a big, goofy looking giant nestled in a huge, green flower bed, filled with a goose and its golden egg, a gazelle, a gorilla, and a giraffe, all included to reinforce the letter G.
