P Is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever: All the Letters That Misbehave and Make Words Nearly Impossible to Pronounce

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Maria Tina Beddia. This wacky alphabet book begins with "A is for Aisle" and gets crazier from there. "M is for Mnemonic" but "N is not for Knot," and it's the one time where "X is for Xylophone" actually works! Under each digitally colored ink picture, a related silly sentence includes other words containing the silent letter. Perfect for highlighting how weird the English language can be.
