This is Mister Doodle’s world. It’s different as can be. Come along and help explore his world from A to Z.
You should know from the start, that Mister Doodle is quite smart.
C is for City, this much is true. But can you see another clue?
What else is there that starts with C? A car of course--you must agree!
Keep this in mind, open your eyes, for on every page there's another surprise!
A is for Art. B is for Bone.
C is for City, like New York or Rome.
D is for Dump Truck. E is for Envelope.
F is for Food, like French toast or cantaloupe.
Mister Doodle's C Is for City features a unique art style: a mixture of black line art and photography for an adorable look that's fresh and creative! Children will be entertained and amused while learning their ABCs with the stick-figured Mister Doodle!
Giuseppe Castellano, an Illustration graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, spends his days designing children's books. Thanks to Mister Doodle and his cute Westie Terrier "Sketch," he now spends his nights illustrating them. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, son, and twin daughters.
Mister Doodle's adventures unfold in bouncy, playful rhymes: "D is for Dump Truck./ E is for Envelope./ F is for Food like French Toast or cantaloupe." A great little introduction to the alphabet, this lively outing, first in a planned series, should inspire kids to notice details. Bonus points for an excellent X entry: the xiphias, aka swordfish, "with its long bill like steel!" Ages 2–5.
