A is for what? A is for salad, and B is for Viking. Welcome to the wacky world of Mike Lester, where nothing is as it seems. Is A really for salad, or is it for the alligator eating a bowl of mixed greens? And maybe B is for the beaver wearing a Viking helmet. You'll have to look twice to figure out what each letter really stands for in this irreverent alphabet book. Learning your ABCs has never been so much F-U-N.

Mike Lester “turns the alphabet picture book on its hoary head . . . the book is hilarious, right down to its view of X and Y: 'not important. Never use them'." US News and World Report
