Mark Shulman and Tamara Petrosino return with a fabulous follow-up to last season's AA is for Aardvark . And it's got a clever new twist.


The alphabetic antics continue--starting from the end! That's why A is for zebrA and Z is for jazZ , and nothing's what you'd expect. The featured letter doesn't appear just once--it's sprinkled throughout the hilarious illustrations. The I page not only has sushI , there's delI , spaghettI , graffitI , and khakI , too. And if you think working backwards makes it easier, well, just try to come up with words that end in Q or J! The results can be quite surprising!

Teachers, librarians, parents, and kids will love the silly--but smart--acrobatics involved in unearthing all these words, along with the witty way the book reinforces the sounds of letters and teaches kids how much fun playing with language can be.
