Synopsis

The alphabet never looked like this before--these letters have drippy noses, scratchy hair, and green teeth. They chase each other and pinch each other, and stick out their tongues. Zany art gives each letter a spectacular new personality, and the humorous, alliterative text is sure to stretch young readers’ vocabularies. Readers young and old will never forget these twenty-six letters . . . and will never look at the alphabet the same way again.

Gerstein (Stop Those Pants!) fashions each letter as an imaginary creature, from the scaly ""awfully arrogant Amphibian"" A to the striped, grinning ""zigzagging zoological Zany"" Z.
