M is for mischief: an A to Z of naughty children
Clever cautionary poems, raucously illustrated, about 26 children you┬'d rather read about than meet.
Here are twenty-six brats you┬'d never want to babysit: Catastrophic Coco, Gluttonous Griffin, Impolite Irma, and Quarrelsome Quincy, just to name a few. Linda Ashman┬'s perfectly crafted ditties about kids from Angry Abby, who is ┬“apt to argue at any time and any place,┬” to Zany Zelda, who ┬“zigs and zags through all the rooms,┬” are paired with hilariously energetic digital collages by Nancy Carpenter. Kids will relish the chaos these naughty tykes create┬—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.
