AlphaOops!: H Is for Halloween

By Alethea Kontis
Illustrated by Bob Kolar

H gets top billing — but a stubborn B has something scary to say — as the inside-out alphabet gives a howl-arious Halloween performance.

Ack! It’s time for the show, and A isn’t ready. But then again, Halloween can only start with one letter, no matter how the A-B-Cs normally go! The misbehaving alphabet is back, and there’s no telling who will take the stage next. Z for zombie? P for pirate? Will X think of something good in time? Neon-bright, comically detailed illustrations show a cacophony of costumed letters, each with a mind and personality all its own. Along the bottom, tiny pumpkins arrange the players in proper order, making this alphabet story letter-perfect for Halloween.

  • A hilarious Halloween romp from the folks who brought you AlphaOops: The Day Z Went First
  • Features the dynamic and fun art of Bob Kolar, whose book Racer Dogs is the basis for Qubo/NBC's animated TV series Turbo Dogs.
  • The sequel to the book the Washington Post Book World called, "The most imaginative alphabet book since Chris Van Allsburg's The Z Was Zapped."
