Description

Berkeley Breathed & Gahan Wilson are saying..."The fortunate thing about The Unfortunate Umbles is that Amy Luwis gave herself free reign, unleashing one of the silliest and most whimsically drawn alphabet books ever."

—–Berkeley Breathed

Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist

Opus, Bloom County

"Amy Luwis has written a naughty book called The Unfortunate Umbles and she was a bad little girl for doing it and I enjoyed it very much."

—–Gahan Wilson

Award-winning cartoonist

The New Yorker, Playboy,

National Lampoon

"The Unfortunate Umbles just might be the most clever little chrestomathic alphabet book I've ever seen."

—–Tom Monteleone Author of The

Complete Idiot's Guide to

Writing a Novel

Alphabet books are one of the oldest literary genres and have always been quite firmly devoted to helping children learn. Although The Umbles sits comfortably in this category, it is much more eager to skulk around adult cocktail parties and literary salons of a bygone era. Like Edward Gorey's superbly unique alphabet book, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, The Umbles is a welcome member to the adult picture book genre.

Adults will be bemused while reading this to their little ones. Little ones will be beguiled. Those lacking an offbeat sense of humor will be quite lost.

Love this alphabet!

My niece is just learning the alphabet and she giggles every time I read this quirky book to her—it helps her learn her ABCs and it helps me keep my sanity because I find it enjoyable to read to her!

5/5 stars

Cute and sweet!

:
I love language, I love letters, and now I love the Umbles! It is a kooky romp from A to Zzzzz--delightful. Even though I didn't buy it for my kids, I'm reading it with them too!
