Mister Doodle may be a simple stick figure, but he lives in a vibrant photo-collage world. In this alphabet book, he and his dog, Sketch, share a new noun for every letter of the alphabet (each scene includes other items that begins with that same letter). Mister Doodle's adventures unfold in bouncy, playful rhymes: "D is for Dump Truck./ E is for Envelope./ F is for Food like French Toast or cantaloupe." A great little introduction to the alphabet, this lively outing, first in a planned series, should inspire kids to notice details. Bonus points for an excellent X entry: the xiphias, aka swordfish, "with its long bill like steel!" Ages 2–5. (July)
