K Is for Kissing a Cool Kangaroo

K Is for Kissing a Cool Kangaroo

by Giles Andreae Illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees
K is for kissing a cool kangaroo, L is for loving, like Daddy loves you, M is for mischievous monkey and mat, N is for naughty and "No, don't do that!"

This picture book puts a new twist on the alphabet with Andreae's fun-filled descriptions for each letter and Parker-Rees's clever illustrations. Each page is dedicated to one letter in the alphabet. The page "G is for a giant, whose garden grows wild" depicts a big, goofy-looking giant nestled in a huge, green flower bed, filled with a goose and its golden egg, a gazelle, a gorilla, and a giraffe, all included to reinforce the letter G.

There is also a guide in the back that asks children to locate more pictures beginning with each letter.
