"Color Zoo"로 1990년 칼데콧상을 수상한 적이 있는 Lois Ehlert의 화려한 원색그림과 리드미컬한 문장이 어린 독자들의 눈과 마음을 사로 잡는 알파벳 그림책입니다.

알파벳 26개 소문자들이 "치카치카 붐붐"하며 서로 먼저 야자나무에 올라 가려고 다툽니다. 26개 소문자가 모두 올라가자 야자나무가 무게때문에 결국 휘어지고 소문자들은 모두 땅으로 떨어집니다. 대문자인 엄마글자, 아빠글자들이 아이들을 안아줍니다...그날 밤 알파벳 소문자 ''a''가 혼자서 야자수 나무를 올라가지요.

The 26 characters in this rhythmic, rhyming baby book are a lowercase alphabet with attitude. "A told b, and b told c, ''I''ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree''"--which probably seemed like a good idea until the other 23 members of the gang decided to follow suit. Lois Ehlert''s chunky block illustrations show the luxuriant green palm standing straight and tall on the first page, but it begins to groan and bend under its alphabetical burden. First the coconuts fall off, then ("Chicka chicka... BOOM! BOOM!") all the letters also end up in a big heap underneath. A very simple board-book version stops there, but this original text goes on to introduce the helping hands of the 26 uppercase "mamas and papas and uncles and aunts." (Baby to preschool)

Book Description
A told B, and B told C, I''ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.
In this lively alphabet rhyme, all the letters of the alphabet race each other up the coconut tree. Will there be enough room? Oh, no -- Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!

The well-known authors of Barn Dance and Knots on a Counting Rope have created a rhythmic alphabet chant that rolls along on waves of fun. Lois Elhert''s rainbow of bright, bold, and cheerful colors makes the merry parade of letters unforgettable.
