Summary

Summary

A is for alligator, Z is for zebra, and in between is an irreverent alphabet filled with surprises and laughter The rhymes in this book come from conversations that David Frampton has had with children. He crafted each rhyme from the questions and comments that children have about animals. So, for every child who ever asked if a leopard has to wash off its spots or if a rhino's horn goes beep, David Frampton has created a book filled with woodcuts of animals so vivid they seem to leap off the page and into our laps

Publisher's Weekly Review

A grinning reptile greets readers on the first spread of My Beastie Book of ABC by David Frampton, which pairs delightfully ridiculous rhymes with playful woodcuts in a psychedelic palette: "A is for alligator./ Her teeth are quite/ awesome./ Yours will be too, if you just/ brush and floss 'em."

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-This dazzling romp through the alphabet spotlights real and imaginary creatures with hilarious descriptive rhymes: "A is for alligator. Her teeth are quite awesome. Yours will be too, if you just brush and floss 'em." Each page has a letter, a rhyme, and an illustration of an animal. The striking woodcuts feature unusual combinations of colors in predominantly hot hues and are framed by a white border. Every so often Frampton throws in something to keep readers on their toes: "M is for moose out in the barn. No wait, that's a cow-.darn!" The woodcut is of a cow-on the back cover there is another "M is for moose-," with one portrayed there. The book offers obvious possibilities for poetry sessions and art projects, but it is first and foremost just plain fun and not to be missed.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA (c) Copyright 2010.
