Repurposing Hurd's original illustrations, this abecedarian adaptation pairs letters of the alphabet (and corresponding words) with objects and elements from the "great green room," including kittens, paintings, and a red balloon. The myriad objects and Hurd's ever-striking orange and green palette lend themselves well to the ABC format. And in keeping with the nature of the source material, the book concludes, not with a zebra, but with some bedtime zzzzs. Up to 5. (July)
