P Is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever

by Raj Haldar Author, Maria Beddia Author and Chris Carpenter Author

Got a beginning reader with a great sense of humor? There's a lot to love in this counterintuitive alphabet book, teaching us such uncomfortable truths about the English language, such as that A is for Aisle and E is for Ewe. The illustrations add to the gag, showing, for instance, a gnome and a gnat sharing a plate of gnocchi to illustrate the letter "G". Grammarians young and old will have a hoot with this hardcover children's picture book.
