G is determined to go first in the alphabet, but A claims that reading will be destroyed! This witty picture book about the order of the alphabet is laugh-out-loud funny! Perfect for fans of wordplay and other pun-filled alphabet books such as Z Is for Moose and E-mergency.

When G wants to be first in the alphabet song, A has a BIG problem! G can’t be first. Not today, not tomorrow, and not next week. NEVER! A tells G if they change the order of the alphabet song, no one will learn how to read, and reading will be DESTROYED!Will reading be destroyed if G is first? G is willing to find out!Filled with laugh-out-loud humor, Beth Bacon and Karen Kane’s witty wordplay is perfectly paired with Eric Barclay’s colorful characters. You’ll never sing the alphabet song the same way again!
