Description
H gets top billing but a stubborn B has something scary to say as the inside-out alphabet gives a howl-arious Halloween performance.
Ack It's time for the show, and A isn t ready. But then again, Halloween can only start with one letter, no matter how the A-B-Cs normally go The misbehaving alphabet is back, and there's no telling who will take the stage next. Z for zombie? P for pirate? Will X think of something good in time? Neon-bright, comically detailed illustrations show a cacophony of costumed letters, each with a mind and personality all its own. Along the bottom, tiny pumpkins arrange the players in proper order, making this alphabet story letter-perfect for Halloween.
