5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fun, fun, refreshing and informative! Feb. 13 2012
By Deborah Sandford - Published on Amazon.com
The letters in Alphabet City are content except for X. He's eXcited and eXasperated with the alphabet. Tired of being third to last and made an example of with the same old words all the time, such as Xray and Xylophone, X calls for a new alphabet. The night before the vote, he wonders "what it's like to have the rules and responsibilities of other letters." A portent dream enlightens X (and the reader) to the functions and obligations of other letters. This farcically contrived story will most definitely enhance a beginning student's realization of the proper and sometime agonizing behavior of the letters of the American English alphabet. Brilliantly colorful, kooky and informative, the illustrations make this a visual delight. Readers will rollick trying to unriddle the colors and caricatures of each letter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for kids. Sept. 8 2011

Loved the story and the neat info about the rules of the alphabet. My 4 and 2 year old kids want it read to them every night. The graphics are also good...something that makes the kids understand what's going on as the story progresses. Recommend this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars My Pre-Reader Loves It July 5 2014
By Juliet - Published on Amazon.com
My four-year-old loves this book like crazy. He's not even learning top read, and he's wild about this book that is all about the rules and of exceptions for letters of the alphabet. I think he likes the art and the drama of the story. This book is a hit.

This is an awesome story. One of my son's favorites. Jef Czekaj also has another book on hip-hop, which for me was a kick for me to read to my son -- lots of inside jokes.
