Monster ABC (Board Books)
Featuring tongue-in-cheek humor for adults and unhinged delight for kids, this alphabet book is full of silly monster fun from Alien to Zombie. Whimsical illustrations combined with winky verses add levity throughout, making this the perfect book to make you the coolest mom, dad, aunt or uncle ever. Monster ABC covers the full monster spectrum: Some are well-known (e.g., Alien, Ghost, Zombie), some are regional favorites (e.g., Jersey Devil, Sasquatch) and some come with a passport (e.g., Banshee, Krampus, Quetzalcoatl). These gorgeously quirky monsters and silly verses will prove there's nothing to fear.
"From 'A is for Alien' to 'Z is for Zombie, ' Monster ABC's rhyming text gives simple introductions to the monsters of the alphabet; silly illustrations make even the scariest of monsters near impossible to find frightening."--Shelf Awareness
"Innovative, modern and incredibly fun. Rhyming board books are prevalent, but rollicking, fun ones are rarer. . . . Incredibly imaginative and funny artwork"--Creators Syndicate
"From A is for Alien to Z is for Zombie, twins Derek and Kyle Sullivan have a winner of a board book on their hands with Monster ABC." --PDX Parent Magazine
"It's a refreshing change from saccharine kids' stories, and includes verses like 'G is for Ghost who gave us a start/H is for Hobgoblin who smells like a fart' and 'Y is for Yeti who's quite hard to find/Z is for Zombie with your brain on his mind.' This children's board book is quirky fun from Alien to Zombie." --Seattle Times ShopNW Christmas Gift Guide
"Monster ABC is our favorite new family book this year. Not only is the artwork amazing, but the rhymes for each letter make this a great, infinitely re-readable alphabet book." --GeekDad.com Holiday Gift Guide
About the Author
Derek and Kyle Sullivan are just your average set of monozygotic twins on a mission to conjure stories and characters that parents enjoy as much as their children. To get there, they never lose sight of their target audience: themselves as children. Raised in the Pacific Northwest on crayons, ghost stories and fish sticks, Derek is now a Seattle-based illustrator and designer, while Kyle bides his time as a writer in Portland.
