A 2017 Geisel Honor Book

In the vein of Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, and other classic cartoons, Oops, Pounce, Quick, Run! is a hilariously clever alphabet caper, perfect for fans of LMNO Peas and Z Is for Moose.

This is a quick-paced chase story told through the alphabet. We love how bold the text is - great for kids who are learning their letters.

Simple alphabet book with a good story. Great for story time and one-on-one sharing. Few words, but used perfectly!

A wonderfully exciting story that leads readers of all ages on an suspenseful what will happen next journey. You will forget you are reading and learning the alphabet at the same time.

It's an alphabet book that takes you on a romp with a dog and a mouse. Clever, silly and with a complete story one word and alphabet letter at a time.

Bright, cartoon-like illustrations, hilarious antics, and simple language make this an excellent read aloud for storytimes. Don't be surprised if readers want to share this one over and over again.
