Halloween ABC

illus. by Jannie Ho. 26p. Nosy Crow. Jul. 2017. Board $6.99. ISBN 9780763695279.
PreS-K—Each letter of the alphabet is featured on its own page in this fun holiday title. Both uppercase and lowercase letters are presented with a bold graphic-style artwork that corresponds to the Halloween theme. Cc is for cauldron, Ee is for eyeballs, Qq is for quiver, Zz is for zombie. The digital illustrations are appealing and cleanly designed with high-contrast hues presented on a different-colored background. The characters are friendly rather than scary, and the direct correspondence between the word on the page and the image makes this a useful book for emerging readers. While there is no plot and nothing groundbreaking about the content, this is a useful addition to larger public and school library collections that support board book collections.
VERDICT A treat for prereaders and emerging readers.
