AlphaOops: H Is for Halloween: Midi Edition (AlphaOops!)
H gets top billing — but a stubborn B has something scary to say — as the inside-out alphabet gives a howl-arious Halloween performance.
Ack! It’s time for the show, and A isn’t ready. But then again, Halloween can only start with one letter, no matter how the A-B-Cs normally go! The misbehaving alphabet is back, and there’s no telling who will take the stage next. Z for z...more
Alpha Oops: H is for Halloween Althea Kontis
Summary: This book presents the alphabet as a cast of characters who are ready to put on the Halloween show. “A” is initially called to go first, but she insists that “H” take center stage since it’s a Halloween presentation. Each letter is sure to make little readers laugh as they anticipate what will happen next especially to the letter “B” who can’t seem to find his place in the alphabet parade. All of the letters are...more
2. This book is about the alphabet and their association to certain halloween words that begin with them. It runs like a theater production, going through the different letters, and has some mess-ups along the way. Each page reads as a different scene of the play.
3b. The illustrations in this book were very confusing. The pictures themselves were very well drawn, but there seemed to be too much going on in each "scene". It was difficult to understand the progre...more
Summary: Creativity at its best! Althea Kontis does a fantastic job of capturing the readers attention with her simple yet colorful illustrations. The setting is a stage for the letters to perform on. And each page has a different Halloween theme for each letter.
A. This book takes a different approach to learning the alphabet. Instead of going straight from A-Z it skips around and keeps track of...more
As in the first AlphaOops book, the order of the letters' 'pageant' is rearranged-- this time A isn't ready to go on and suggests H go first, since 'you can't have Halloween without H.' After some protests (Astute readers may remember that H was the one in the first book who wanted to stay right in his usual position, 9th), H leads off a Halloween-themed alphabet, though this time B s...more
The jacket of the book is attention grabbing. In the center of the page there is a large “H” on top of a...more

Having worked in a school environment, I can say that teaching the alphabet and indeed spelling and phonetics isn't just about the order of the letters but familiarising the children with what each letter represents. Alethea does a fantastic job in doing just that with this delightful story.

For sheer alphabetical Halloween fun this might even be a four and a half star book.
The only thing I might say is don't go into it expecting a "story." The fun is in the silly alphabet characters (both the written depiction as well as the fun illustration).
I liked the story book about ALphaOoops who mixed up in order to celebrate Halloween. The letter A is not ready , but letter H is on the top letters who shows readiness.The author used digital art type in order to attract children to read it. This book suites k-Gr 3 students to read it and it introduce American traditional celebrations as Halloween.
While putting on a Halloween pageant, the alphabet mixes things up with some spooky, and funny, results.
