In this book you'll find 26 children who are almost certainly nothing like you. You always eat your peas and say please. You, unlike Oscar, would never tell lies. And in your wildest dreams you wouldn't play with your food the way Nancy does. But even the sweetest child can be tempt-ed to behave badly. Thankfully, Dan Krall has put together this collection to remind us just how unpleasant beastly behavior can be.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Krall's pen and ink drawings-part Mad magazine, part Ronald Searle-find ample scope in his authorial debut (he illustrated Sally Lloyd-Jones's Being a Pig Is Nice), an abecedary of nasty children. "A is for Andy who won't eat his peas," it opens, with a strawberry blond boy in a T-shirt whose hair leaps up like a fountain and who regards his plate with disdain. "B is for Becky who cannot say please" shows a girl with googly eyes and snaggly teeth, reaching desperately for a lollipop. Kathy, who won't brush her teeth, has lumps of repulsive green goo on her tongue; Nancy, who plays with her food, pokes a distressed-looking carrot into a mashed potato castle with broccoli landscaping. Sparks of nervous energy jump off the children, waves of stench rise from them, flies buzz around them, and they fart aggressively. Entries like "V is for Violet who does nothing right," and "S is for Sigmund who still wets the bed" won't make kids with those proclivities feel any better.
