This amazing picture book taught me not to judge a book by its thickness. When I checked the book out from the library, I also stacked about four other possibilities. I thought surely I would not pick this book, it’s so thick!
Each letter gets - not one - TWO dedicated spreads. Each spread has real-life photographs of conspicuously posed animals against a white background. It’s beautiful in its simplicity. When I got to C’s Chameleon, I knew I had to include this book.
Nothing more to say about this book except: Check it out!
And now onto the next installment of THE GREAT ALPHABET DISASTER.
C was Curtailing a Cranky Cat when A and B crowded onto her page.
The Cat didn’t want to be curtailed. It wanted to be cut loose.
“Have you come across my Ball?” asked B.
“I Cannot Confirm nor deny seeing your ball.” replied C, “but from the Conduct of my Cat, I Conclude that she did.”
“Meow!” the Cat confirmed.
“I Cannot let you Chase that ball!” said C, corralling the Cat tighter in her arms, “Do you know what is on the next page?”
“Amazing Advice,” A applauded, and began walking to the next page, “We’ll Apprehend the culprit yet!”
“Capital suggestion!” B nodded. "It's a crazy conundrum."
C’s curiosity was perked. She put the Cat down and began to follow A and B. Then she caught a glimpse of the circular spots crossing her page, “A Clue!”
“Affirmative,” A said, turning back briefly, “We’ve Already Assessed that clue.”
But C's Cat hadn’t assessed it yet, and when she did, she began licking the confectionary circles. This detail was not missed by C, who had spent some time in the C. I. A., and she crouched down to take a closer look. Consequently, she had to move quickly to catch up with A, and B, as they careened onto the next page.
Who has Created those Circular Clues? The story Continues tomorrow...
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
