Editorial Reviews

"Combining the subversive silliness of underground comix with the elegant grimness ofEdward Gorey, The Incredibly Strange ABCs will enchant both children and adults withaddictive tongue twisters and surreal scenarios. Roused from a stupor produced by readingtoo many humdrum alphabet books, parents will laugh along with their tots as they exploreBishop's absurd and wondrous world."-Julia Elliott, author of The New and Improved Romie Futch"As a father of two budding weirdos, Bishop's The Incredibly Strange ABCs was a revelation;far more fun than the stuffy, homogenized alphabet books I grew up with as a kid. Thesestrange illustrations and clever wordplay never fail to illicit giggles or downright maniacallaughter from my children. The weirder, the better, and this book has it covered."-Steve Daniels, segment director of Drafthouse Films anthology ABC's of Death 2.5.
