A is for Arnyx: An Alphabet in Verse
By: Guy Conner

A cute book of rhymes in verse with colorful characters (that can be colored!) worthy of Seuss.
This was a GoodReads First Reads book, sent by the author. I came home to it after my trip, and read it to my daughter that peered curiously at the various creatures mentioned. The explanations at the end held my attention better than my daughter’s, but for a first reading, I didn’t want to miss anything. I’m glad I didn’t, too! Some of the stories are as creative as the creatures themselves!
The verses vary in length and form, but each holds a rhyme. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but if pressed, I’d have to go with the Umpdyump. Each rhyme has it’s own voice, so the book does not get tedious. And as mentioned before, this would sit nicely next to Dr. Seuss. A great book for the young and those that simply think young!
