Imagine a preschool classroom with 25 cranky kids and one beleaguered teacher.

It only takes one small annoying act from Adelaide to set off a chain reaction of bad behavior. Dexter is drooling, Flora is fuming, Jasper is jeering, Kirby is kicking . . . and before you know it, Stella is stumbling, Todd is tumbling, and Winthrop is weeping. Oh, oh, oh!

What will it take to turn this annoying day around? Readers will be amazed and amused to see what happens when Adelaide . . . apologizes.

Barbara Bottner and Michael Emberley follow up their bestselling Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I Don't) with this outrageously funny alphabet book that shows that kindness can be contagious, too.

Each kiddo in the class is named by a letter in the alphabet. A chain reaction is set off by Adelaide to Bailey and it continues through the alphabet until it is all resolved in the end. Lots of fun to see what happens as each child is affected by the previous events.

Funny and entertaining. Great spin on the alphabet with attractive images.

Funny adventure through the ABCs that could be used in a storytime with some added sound effects.
