This is a fun ABC book that offers yet another opportunity for a quick read aloud, some good laughs, and a chance for Kinders and 1st graders to practice those letters and letter sounds. My only complaint?

Just a note--the letter "M" was situated on the page in such a way that, if you're holding to book open facing students, it's easy to miss if you're not paying attention. Believe me--the kids are quite happy to point this out. :D

Fed Up is apparently the first book both written and illustrated by Rex Barron...and you can tell. There is no real theme to the phrases, other than having to deal with food and some of the illustrations are rather dark. The concepts might be interesting, but anyone old enough to understand them would probably not be too intrigued by an alphabet book anymore.

Yes, another book involving anthropomorphic fruits and vegetables. But the illustrations are fantastic and accompany the alphabet with scenes such as, "potatoes ponder politics," "dills debate destiny," and "fig fights fat." For the littles ones beginning to learn letters and vocabulary, this is a good one for the collection.

Only just got the pun in the title now as I typed it in to search. This is an alphabet book where each letter features food, but those foods are somehow upset. Lots of words about negative emotions and a fair variety in foods, but otherwise, it isn't extraordinary.

Another alphabet book - only this time it showcases my favorite subject: Food! Every kind of food doing every kind of activity is shown, all the way from Anxious Apples to Zen Zucchini. The Objecting Oranges were my favorite.

Zany, funny, imaginative illustrations.

Great illustrations and use of alliteration. Clever and fun. Exposure to new vocabulary-- probably best for 1st grade
