This reminded me of two other Caldecott-honor winners, The Graphic Alphabet and Gone Wild. This ABC book doesn't have text beyond the letter of the alphabet and the name of the item representing the letter. The star of this book are its illustrations! They show humor, movement, bright colors, and simple shapes while very cleverly morphing from a letter of the alphabet into an object representing that letter. I could see this book being helpful to some young students as they learn their ABCs. The illustrations would also be fabulous as a border along the top of a chalkboard in a classroom or school library. My favorites are E into elephant, F into fish, G into giraffe, K into kite, Q into quail, and S into swan.
