“A” is for more than just Apple in this exuberant and interactive alphabet book from the creators of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
“A is for Apple…” but what else does it stand for? There are Avalanches of things that start with “A”: Artichokes! Airplanes! Aliens! What about C? D? E, F, and G? There are Cans of things that start with C, Dozens of Ds, Endless Es, whole Flocks of Fs, and, you guessed it, Globs of Gs. No sir, this is not your typical alphabet book. Filled with clever alliteration and vibrant illustrations, readers can sleuth their way through this vocabulary-expanding picture book and just might find their vocabulary reaching…excessive…heights.
