From mandolions and rhinoboes to gorillutes and newtubas, twenty-six wacky alphabeasts join a musical safari. Through humorous rhymes, this book presents a cross between an animal and a musical instrument for each letter of the alphabet. A llama and maracas come together to create llamaracas, a lynx and a violin form the violynx, while the saxofox stems from a fox and a saxophone. Young readers will laugh at the zany illustrations.
