What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Bestselling and award-winning artist Patrick McDonnell uses the ABC’s to tell a hilarious, high-energy alphabetical adventure. It starts with an ALLIGATOR and a BEAR chasing a CAT. When a DRAGON (and a chicken and an egg!) join in pursuit, things start to get REALLY interesting. A wild and wacky chase through snow and ice, and to jungles and over mountaintops, leads the whole crew to a wonderful realization: They’re better off as friends. From New York Times bestselling author and Caldecott Honor recipient Patrick McDonnell comes an exciting new take on the alphabet book for everyone who has ever wondered what’s just beyond the front door.

I’m not normally a fan of wordless books, but this ABC adventure (there’s no other word for it!) is fantastic. McDonnell’s illustrations are full of movement and life, and the animals’ adventures from A to Z are entertaining and give munchkins the opportunity to try to identify what each letter has introduced… don’t worry, it’s not too hard!
