Clever cautionary poems, raucously illustrated, about 26 children you?d rather read about than meet.

Here are twenty-six brats you?d never want to babysit: Catastrophic Coco, Gluttonous Griffin, Impolite Irma, and Quarrelsome Quincy, just to name a few. Linda Ashman?s perfectly crafted ditties about kids from Angry Abby, who is ?apt to argue at any time and any place,? to Zany Zelda, who ?zigs and zags through all the rooms,? are paired with hilariously energetic digital collages by Nancy Carpenter. Kids will relish the chaos these naughty tykes create?and also the comeuppance many of them justly receive.

Wickedly witty wordplay and fiendishly fresh artwork make this a standout in the field of alphabet books.

The illustrator of Jenny Offill’s 17 Things I’m Not Allowed To Do Anymore (2007) builds on a clear knack for depicting deceptively fresh-faced children with this extended alliterative gallery of malfeasants.
