P Is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever Reviews

  • Rachel

    An advert on Goodreads for this book piqued my interest, and I have been patiently waiting for it to come from another library in our system (we definitely need more than one copy for multiple libraries!). It was well worth the wait. This is one of the funniest and silliest alphabet books I have ever read.

    I learned that the author is a rapper, and the rhyming in the book was a good indication of that. The Worst Glossary in the World taught me a new word I had never heard of (Jai alai) and gave

    Before I moved I had a collection of quirky alphabet books, but this one takes the cake!

    P Is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever is a children's picture book written by Raj Haldar and Chris Carpenter and illustrated by Maria Beddia. It is an alphabet book that uses unusual words to represent the letter in question with comical illustrations.

    I want to say I bought this for my friend’s daughter but I am ridiculously selfish, and bought it for my friend’s daughter will full intention of reading it first. And boy do I love this book! So satisfying. English. What a goofy language.

    This book wants to be a a Graham Base type book like Animalia. The big problem with that is that Graeham Base is an amazing Illustrator...and this illustrator is absolutely terrible. Looks like someone in grade school did the art. Actually I've seen grade school kids draw better than this. It is THE thing that would have made this good. The premise is clever. SHowing words with silent letters at the beginning...although it doesn't always work. Sometimes they substitute a letter sounds for a word ...more

    This is a *delightful* alphabet book that uses some unusual examples for its letters - but the illustrations are great and it also provides a great glossary in the back for kiddos (and adults) who want more context for the neat words they encounter inside.
