Bestselling and award-winning artist Patrick McDonnell uses the ABC's to tell a hilarious, high-energy alphabetical adventure.

It starts with an ALLIGATOR and a BEAR chasing a CAT. When a DRAGON (and a chicken and an egg!) join in pursuit, things start to get REALLY interesting. A wild and wacky chase through snow and ice, and to jungles and over mountaintops, leads the whole crew to a wonderful realization: They're better off as friends.

From New York Times bestselling author and Caldecott Honor recipient Patrick McDonnell comes an exciting new take on the alphabet book for everyone who has ever wondered what's just beyond the front door.

My 2 and 3-year-old both enjoyed this book. They enjoyed "coming up" with the story themselves based on the pictures (each page only has a letter from the alphabet on it). They both found the story very humorous. Great story for practicing alphabet and encouraging children's imagination. Cute illustrations that really engaged my boys while snuggling together on the couch.

A fun interactive (wordless!) alphabet book. Alphabet letters are on each page but the reader must figure out what part of the illustration the letters represent - don't worry, there's an answer key at the back. The simple expressive animals are drawn in McDonnell's typical style, adding humor to this adventurous tale. Ages 4-6.
