123 Versus ABC

If a book about numbers and a book about letters meshed, and then the numbers and the 1405623036576letters fought about whose book it was, well, you’d have 123 Versus ABC by Mike Boldt. The letter A and the number 1 host a growing parade of animals and items that fit their perspectives on the book:  sixteen pigs and twenty-two violins–every letter has a number that can keep up. By the end, our hosts and our readers know that both can share the limelight.
