Both story and abc book. Worked well at toddler time

This charming book extends far beyond the usual "A is for apple" alphabet book. Instead, it uses the alphabet as a foundation on which to build the sweet story of a dog attempting to get a taste of an apple pie:

E eager for it
F find a crumb of it
G get a taste for it
H have to get a lick of it
I in trouble

The stylish illustrations enhance the text and bring the dog's antics to life. A fresh and creative take on the ABCs!

So Cute! Great book -- takes you through the alphabet but it's really a dog book -- that puppy really WANTS that pie!
