About the Author

Judy Sierra's knack at telling stories in rhyme is impressively demonstrated in her E. B.White Read-Aloud Award winner, Wild About Books; in Born to Read; and in Thelonius Monster's Sky-High Fly Pie. She lives in Eugene, Oregon. Melissa Sweet is the illustrator of many acclaimed children's books, including her collaboration with Judy Sierra on Schoolyard Rhymes. She is also the author and illustrator of Carmine: A Little More Red. She lives in Rockport, Maine.


PreS-Gr 2-In this winning alphabet-cum-bedtime book, capital-letter parents gradually tuck their lowercase children in for the night. Sierra uses a number of poetic tools as she tears her way through the alphabet (never once mentioning a xylophone) while multimedia elements-a notebook-paper cloud here, a fabric-clothed letter there-pepper the pen-and-pencil-outlined watercolor illustrations. Sweet extrapolates the effect of Sierra's alliterative text with perfectly timed, amusing details (it really wouldn't be an alphabet book without that xylophone, would it?). Parents and children, librarians, teachers, and students will pore over this one again and again.-Bethany Isaacson, Wheaton Regional Library, Silver Spring, MD Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, July & August 2009:
"Using humor perfectly tuned for the two- to five-year-old audience, Sierra and Sweet's alphabet book will capture the attention of the younger end . . . as well as the older.'"
