Alphabet of Admirable Attributes: A Is for Awesome by Dallas Clayton


When you start out the alphabet wth an A for amazing and awesome, what will you do for the amazin' and brazen letter Z?

Z is for Zero Defects?

In his sequel to the self-published, top-selling An Awesome Book!,Dallas Clayton pulls out some truly awesome adjectives for the rest of his alphabet of admirable attributes.

Clayton's latest, A Is for Awesome (Candlewick Press, 2014), adds adjective upon adjective to his abecedarius of commendable qualities, with words from confident or dreaming to talkative or understanding. His freestyle, squiggly illustrations provide examples for everything to do with those qualities, from a baseball bat to a sailboat. Following up on his gone-viral first book, Clayton's novel alphabet book is intended to inspire youngsters to try their wings and go for the gusto, except, of course, when it comes to the end of the day, when it's time to give it all a rest!

Z Is For ... ZZZleeping!

As Publishers Weekly's reviewer puts it, "In keeping with the irreverently inspirational attitude of his previous work, Clayton provides an alphabet of affirmations."
