Alpha Oops! Series

Alpha Oops! The Day Z Went First
by Alethea Kontis
illustrated Bob Kolar

This book is a lot of fun! As letter A is introducing himself, letter Z jumps in, insisting that he get an equal turn at going first. He's followed by letters Y, X, W and P, and soon chaos breaks out. Adorable digital illustrations imbue each letter with personality. 

In their review, School Library Journal said "Plenty of details to absorb, colorful images to grab the eye, and a confused letter template running below the action create alphabet antics for early readers. A fun addition."

In this sequel, the little personified letters once again take center stage, this time in a Halloween pageant full words like zombie, nightmare, kraken, vampire, and undead. School Library Journal called this book "a winsome union of humorous text and ideal addition to holiday collections." 

And Booklist ended their review by saying that "for kids who have outgrown basic ABC books and revel in the spooky side of Halloween, it offers a more engaging experience than your average alphabet book."
