The Alphabet’s Alphabet by Chris Harris & Dan Santat: Blog Tour Review & Giveaway

Posted September 28, 2020 by Sara | Novel Novice 1 Comment

Today’s review is part of the official blog tour for this book. Be sure to keep reading for your chance to win a copy!

For fans of P is for Pterodactyl comes this groundbreaking spin on the ABC’s from an acclaimed, bestselling author and artist pairing!

Here’s a totally twisted take on the alphabet that invites readers to look at it in a whole new way: An A is an H that just won’t stand up right, a B is a D with its belt on too tight, and a Z is an L in a tug-of-war fight! Twenty-six letters, unique from each other — and yet, every letter looks just like one another! Kind of like…one big family.

From two bestselling masters of wordplay and visual high jinks comes a mind-bending riddle of delightful doppelgängers and surprising disguises that reveal we’re more alike than we may think. You’ll never look at the alphabet the same way again!

As a new mother, I can appreciate more than ever the way we resemble our family. My twins are nearly five months old now, and I still find it mildly shocking when I look at my daughter and see myself staring back. Or the way my son looks like a tiny version of my husband. And in more subtle ways, I’ll occasionally see glimpses of my husband in my daughter — and myself in my son.

So I love the way The Alphabet’s Alphabet by Chris Harris & Dan Santat uses the letters of the alphabet to show how the beauty in our differences and our similarities.

The writing is snappy and quick, but the whole story comes together with Santat’s hilarious illustrations. My kiddos are a little young still for this book, but I can’t wait to read it with them when they’re just a little bit older, and explore our family resemblances, while celebrating their uniqueness.

The Alphabet’s Alphabet is in stores September 29th.

    My son is 11 and I still love little kid books. This looks so cute. I would totally read it and then donate it to my small town library.
