School Library Journal - 07/01/2020 PreS-Gr 1—The letters of the alphabet have more in common than meets the eye; in fact, they may be a family. 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." Harris (I'm Just No Good at Rhyming) offers an ingenious and humorous look at the alphabet in a hand-lettered text, where speech bubbles accompany the chatty letters. Children will engage with the rhyming text and have fun deciphering the images. With over-the-top creativity, Santat's illustrations use a soft colored palette of secondary colors. VERDICT For use in preschools or alphabet-themed story times, this funny and creative ABC book will delight children and adults alike.—Kathia Ibacache, Univ. of Colorado Boulder - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
