The ABCs in chase form! Brilliant! Leave it to Patrick McDonnell and his adorably expressive red cat to get us up and running. This fast moving, nearly wordless story comes together piece by piece, letter by letter. We are off and running as soon as our red cat hero makes a dash for the open door....

The title tells what the story is basically about. It is close to wordless but with a few minor reservations, it is easy to tell what each letter signifies. In case you get stuck, the author lists the words on the last page of the book. I found O to be difficult to decipher and had to resort to t...

When the little red cat heads outside, he discovers a world of surprises and dangers that follow the ABCs. Readers will have to puzzle out what matches each letter along the way (though there is a key in the back of the book to help if you get stuck.) With a merry chase throughout the book, it ha...

Cat and friends go on a wild caper from A-Z and back again. Playful yet focused and clear its' concept and plot. McDonnell achieves a lot with simple lines and plain backgrounds. The key in the final page helps for the trickier letters. Sure to be a kid hit that rewards multiple readings.

Super fun wordless book about a little red cat who runs away and gets into all sorts of trouble -- in alphabetical order. Each page only has the letter -- capital and lowercase -- and an image corresponding to the letter. A great way to tell a wordless story and learn letters! The book is in an app...

OMG! How did I miss this gem! So happy that I caught Victoria Stapleton's podcast where she interviews Patrick McDonnell. So worth a listen! The book features a red cat who wakes up one morning, spies an open door and runs away. He quickly comes face-to-face with an alligator and so the alphabet...

An ABC book. The letters are the only things on the pages as the cat slips out the door and finds himself pursued through the entire alphabet. The reader has to work out the significance.

First sentence: Aa Bb Cc Dd Ee Premise/plot: Using nothing but the alphabet, McDonnell tells the story of a little red cat who has a mighty, big adventure before returning home once more. It stars a cat, an alligator, a bear, a dragon, a chicken, and an egg.... My thoughts: Technically, I'm not sur...
