Synopsis

A is for Apple, B is for Boy, right? Not according to these little birds! A is for a jumping bird's cry of Alley-oop! H is for the sound a bird makes when it sneezes---Ha-choo! T is for a woodpecker's Tok tok.  Readers of all ages will be surprised and amused twenty-six times by the silly sounds that little birds make in this charming, whimsical alphabet book.
