Staff Reviews

An alphabet book for adults! (and awesome kids)




From Atticus, the altruistic astronaut, to Zooey, the zonked zombie, this book revamps the ABCs. C is for Cat? D is for dog? Not in this book! Here, Colossal Cornelius captures his companions with his camera and Daisy the diver dares a death-defying dip with dinosaurs. In Alphabetics, each of the alphabet's twenty-six letters is depicted with an awesome alliteration--not to mention an illuminating illustration--that will captivate and stimulate young minds. Although the lettered tales are meant to be humorous and fun, they also serve a commendable purpose. Complex words are introduced to expand children's vocabularies and linguistic horizons. The book includes a glossary so that readers can look up any terms that are unfamiliar to them.

Praise For…

"In Alphabetics, each of the alphabet’s letters is represented by an extraordinary alliteration and an explicative illustration by Dawid Ryski that will fascinate and stimulate young minds."
—Kid’s Wear Magazine
"A is for apple, B is for BORING… Ho-hum. This is NOT that book...Alphabetics is a unique and enjoyable alphabet book that both parents and kids will love." --Bergers Book Reviews
"A glorious book … a fun, challenging and illustrative adventure which equates to the best kind of learning." (
"A modish alphabet book that delights in sophisticated, alliterative language … Grainy prints dominated by shades of mustard, saffron, and robin’s egg blue lend a polished, offbeat aesthetic. A glossary offers definitions for many of the words, rounding out the tongue-twisting wordplay with a vocabulary lesson for budding logophiles." --Publishers Weekly
