Against Alphabet Picture Books, the Gods Themselves Contend in Vain

abc2 Capture

Alphabet books – cease doing!
Everybody’s fails, goes headlong into
jangling, klanging lines.
Meaning no offense, please quit.
Readers’ll say thanks, ultimately.

Very warmly,

XXX,

Yours —

Zeus

Am I the only one who feels this way? It has all been done, people, and it’s time to move on.

I wonder if the Russians or the Greeks or the Cherokee have this problem.

The image above, incidentally, is a screenshot of a Google image search I did for something to do with alphabet books, I forget exactly what the terms were, probably something like “alphabet picture book cover.
