123 versus ABC

A 2014 Children's Book Committee BEST CHILDREN'S BOOKS OF THE YEAR selection, 2014 Irma Black Award Semifinalist & a 2013 Kids' Indie Next List selection

This is a book about Numbers...err I mean Letters...errr... I don't know yet!
Letters and Numbers BOTH believe this book is about them! And when one alligator shows up (that starts with an A) the craziness really takes off.

“Readers won’t care whether it’s about letters or numbers - they will be too busy poring over the artwork and laughing.” -Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW!

"Boldt’s illustrations have a dimensional, painterly quality that recalls Adam Rex’s work, and the absurd scenarios, strong-willed personalities, and visual gags will have kids laughing from A to 26."
–Publisher's Weekly

 "Show-stopping illustrations make this book a delight, even for proficient counters and readers!”
—Erin Barker, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA    Summer 2013 Kids' Indie Next List
