Colouring books are no longer strictly a child's domain, so why should ABC books be left solely to the kids to enjoy?
Wordplay is rampant in Michael Escoffiër's "Take Away the A." The alligator jamboree in Maurice Sendak's "Alligators All Around: An Alphabet" is definitely not just for tots. Indulge yourself in Ed Gorey's mysterious and dark "The Gashlycrumb Tinies, or, After the Outing." If you're changing careers, perhaps you can find your next job in "Work: An Occupational ABC." Reaffirm your love of the city with "Toronto ABC." How many landmarks have you visited?
"K is for Knifeball: An Alphabet of Terrible Advice" by Avery Monsen and Jory John is hilarious, depending on your humour of course. Some reviews compare it to "Go the F*ck to Sleep." I happened upon this gem at Page & Panel, the TCAF Shop at the Toronto Reference Library.
