Animalicious: A Quirky ABC Book, by Anna Dewdney, Reed Duncan, and Claudia Boldt

Written by Anna Dewdney and Reed Duncan, Illustrated by Claudia Boldt

The first thing any reader needs to know about this book is that it is not meant to teach about animals. Nor is it a true alphabet book. When you heed these two important facts, this book is really fun and clever. Sometimes the animal’s name is in the new one like in “Grabbit” (a rabbit who tries to make off with the letter ‘G’ and other times it isn’t, like in “Piethon” (a snake eating a pie). The illustrations are fun too. I especially enjoyed the ostrich with an attitude. Younger readers might not get the humor, but older ones who want to think outside the box will truly enjoy it.
