What a fun, inventive addition to ABC books I love how each letter helped tell the story of the little dog s attempts to eat an apple pie Nice change of pace from each letter simply describing an object, for example The illustrations are cute as can be Thank you, Professor Nana, for recommending this ABC book The illustrations have a classic feel and draw upon the pacing of the alphabet to tell the story of a dog who tries to be good But who can be good when their is hot baked apple pie so near and so accessible. 7 5 18 Read with Naomi Julia.
