2. A book review from Publisher's Weekly says, "What's a teacher to do when all of the students in her class have the same first name? In this offbeat alphabet book, Mrs. Tuttle has found what she believes is an easy solution. Mrs. T. distinguishes the 25 Matthews in her kindergarten by associating the first letter of each boy's last name with one of his attributes. For example, "Matthew A. is affectionate" and "Matthew G. has trouble with glue." By the penultimate page, readers have met the entire class, save for the new kid: a boy named Matthew (of course) who takes his place in the line-up right after Matthew Y. and is sporting lots of zippers. Following a fairly standard ABC-book template, each page is devoted to a letter that's featured in an upperhand corner. Throughout, Catalanotto (Emily's Art) makes a departure from his customary, portrait-flavored style and employs more playful lines and shapes in buoyantly hued watercolors. The artist's often wacky depictions of what makes each Matthew special (Matthew F. has a cat on his face; Matthew R. has freckles in the shape of a rhinoceros) offer kids plenty of laughs and, perhaps, new ways to look at their own classmates."
3. This is a super fun and comical book that uses the alphabet in a different way than most authors. It is about a teacher, Mrs. Tuttle, that has 25 students that are all named Matthew with a last name beginning with one of the letters A-Z. She has several different techniques on how to remember which Matthew is which from Matthew A. being extremely Affectionate, Matthew Q. being Queasy, and finally Matthew Z. (the new student) being full of Zippers. I would recommend this book to students in kindergarten or first grade as I think that they would have fun guessing how Mrs. Tuttle is going to remember each Matthew. Great, colorful watercolor illustrations as well!
