For what it is, this book is incredibly cute. Adorable illustrations with fun details and bright colors that will appeal to child. The twisted definitions of traditional fashion terminology will appeal to parents who are fed up with more "basic" alphabet books.
That said, this is a book geared primarily towards children and not for adults. I got this, thinking it was one of those books that would work for adults as well, but it really isn't. The humor is cute and tongue-in-cheek but really doesn't wink at the audience in the way I was expecting, which is entirely on me.
If you're a parent looking for an alphabet book that's a bit different and won't make you want to pull out your hair and you've already had to hide your copy of CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM, I think this will be fun. But if you don't have kids and aren't a children's librarian, there's no point in getting this.
I will likely be gifting my copy to a parent friend with young children.
3 out of 5 stars
