The Z Was Zapped 06/27/12
Sean and I independently both picked The Z Was Zapped by Chris Van Allsburg for it's great title. I picked it because Z is my favorite letter of the alphabet. Sean picked it because he wanted to see something get zapped.
The Z Was Zapped is a black and white alphabet book. Although the title starts with Z the book actually begins at the conventional point with A. Each letter gives a stage performance, something related to its self.
While he and I liked the artwork it wasn't quite what we had hoped for. Some of the letter performances are very dark, like the D being drowned.
