It’s high time someone shed light on the alphabet, and who better than two of the craftiest creators in the land, Chris Harris and Dan Santat? Storytime will never be the same once you realize that “B is a D with its belt on too tight” and other musings meant to tickle the brain and surprise your eyes. Put this in your parlor of punny poems alongside Harris' and Santat’s other masterpieces.
Here's a totally twisted take on the alphabet that invites readers to look at it in a whole new way: An A is an H that just won't stand up right, a B is a D with its belt on too tight, and a Z is an L in a tug-of-war fight! Twenty-six letters, unique from each other and yet, every letter looks just like one another! Kind of like...one big family.
From two bestselling masters of wordplay and visual high jinks comes a mind-bending riddle of delightful doppelgängers and surprising disguises that reveal we're more alike than we may think. You'll never look at the alphabet the same way again!
