The Unruly Alphabet (Hardcover)
In "The Unruly Alphabet," illustrator Aaron McKinney uses the Latin alphabet to create a lively and haunting abecedary. The restless glyphs tangle and spar with one another, setting the stage for scenes where "A was arrested, while B bit bullies" and "G is gored, which makes H hurl." McKinney renders the scenes with macabre detail and sinister wit, and the accompanying captions hum with gallows humor. "The Unruly Alphabet" is truly an alphabet book like no other, for the brooding child in every adult.
