M is for mischief: an A to Z of naughty children
Clever cautionary poems, raucously illustrated, about 26 children youÂ'd rather read about than meet.
Here are twenty-six brats youÂ'd never want to babysit: Catastrophic Coco, Gluttonous Griffin, Impolite Irma, and Quarrelsome Quincy, just to name a few. Linda AshmanÂ's perfectly crafted ditties about kids from Angry Abby, who is Â“apt to argue at any time and any place,Â” to Zany Zelda, who Â“zigs and zags through all the rooms,Â” are paired with hilariously energetic digital collages by Nancy Carpenter. Kids will relish the chaos these naughty tykes createÂ—and also the comeuppance many of them justly receive.
Wickedly witty wordplay and fiendishly fresh artwork make this a standout in the field of alphabet books.
