Welcome to Mister Doodle’s world—it’s different as can be. Come along and help explore his world from A to Z.

In C Is for City, we meet Mister Doodle—a stick figure who lives somewhere in between the real world and a child’s imagination. He’s smart and sophisticated with a hint of goofiness—a winning combination that allows him to teach the ABC’s while entertaining! C Is for City introduces toddlers to a unique art style—a mixture of black line art and photography—never before seen in board books. The black ink drawings are simple and clean. The photographs are colorful, and chosen strategically to highlight each letter being taught.

The Mister Doodle books also have a “hidden” layer of educational content for hours of fun learning! On each page of C Is for City, toddlers will learn multiple words that start with that particular letter—not just the one word mentioned in the text. For example, they will discover that not only is C for “City,” but C is for “car” or “cab” as well.

The entertainment and educational value of this alphabet book far surpasses one read!

“Keep your eyes open / and on each page you’ll see / not just one word for each letter but at least two or three!” The hunt requires an understanding of vocabulary to find all the hidden gems (a Car that is also a Cab appears for the letter C along with City skyscrapers).

In this alphabet book, he and his dog, Sketch, share a new noun for every letter of the alphabet (each scene includes other items that begins with that same letter).
