A Halloween book for kids!

Alpha Oops: H is for Halloween, written by Alethea Kontis and illustrated by Bob Kolar

I reviewed this back in the day (okay, just last year when it first came out) on the original KinderScares site.  Our kids love love love this mixed up alphabet (in fact, my writing this was just interrupted by my 3-year-old walking by, seeing the picture and demanding I read it to him…but I digress).  It’s just been rereleased in a smaller format, which gives me a chance to rave about it all over again!

Here’s what I said about it last year:

It’s time for the Halloween show, and A isn’t ready yet. But hey, Halloween starts with H, so who better to get things started? Even mixed-up, this wacky alphabet puts on quite a production!
With something spooky-themed for each letter of the disordered alphabet, this book really keeps you guessing by throwing in some unexpected words (I’m sorry – kraken and lycanthrope in the same children’s book? I hereby crown you KING OF THE ALPHABET BOOKS!). Illustrations are great, with a style that’s reminiscent of old-timey Halloween decorations dosed with cuteness.
Definitely a new household favourite for our little monsters, and I’m so glad we stumbled upon it…grab a copy for your own little beasts!
Serious Halloween fun for the little guys.  If you need an All Hallow’s Read suggestion for a kid in your life, look no further!  There’s also a fun website where you can do puzzles and play games after reading the book.  Have fun!

  1. This is one of our favorite picture books of all times. My daughter has this (as well as the original Alpha Oops:The Day Z Came First) autographed by The Princess Kontis herself. (Thanks again, Your Highness!!!)

Say something, dammit!
