Hannah has quite an appetite and in Hannah's Tall Order her taste buds are about to get the better of her - and have readers in stitches too.

How do you make a sandwich using every letter of the alphabet? And more importantly, perhaps, how do you eat that sandwich? Hannah is about to find out as she strolls into Mr. McDougal's cafe and orders her idea of a perfect meal.

"Avocados and bean sprouts - fresh carrots galore.
Dill pickles, egg salad - those figs I adore!"
McDougal got busy and started to chop.
He peeled and he minced. He grated nonstop!

But Hannah is just getting started. She continues to add all sorts of toppings to her lunch and poor Mr. McDougal struggles to keep up. Finally the sandwich is complete, but wow, it's rather tall and floppy. Will Hannah be able to eat that whole thing...

Kudos to author Linda Vander Heyden who somehow was able to take ingredients from each letter of the alphabet and fold them seamlessly into a sandwich poem that flowed perfectly. Red-headed and very freckled Hannah is adorable and the expressions on Mr. McDougal's face as Hannah picks out ingredients are priceless. In other words, the illustrations are a perfect match for the very funny story. With the abundance of alphabet books to choose from, this one is truly unique and should be at the top of the list to add to your collection.

Quill says: I LOVED this book! With a perfect rhyme, and lots of fun too, it's just what the deli owner ordered to help kids learn their ABCs!
