Alphabet Puke--Monsters' Medicine A-Z by Quinn Cole

I usually recommend books for older readers, but I'm recommending a picture book this month. This is a link to the book trailer. It's a treat and it says it all...

A quote from the press release: "Even those who quake at the mention of 'medicine' will eagerly follow these friends' adventures as they discover how hiccups happen, fevers flare, warts grow, and more! Alphabet Puke is Monsters Inc meets Dougie Houser, M.D."
This book is unique, fun, and for sale Monday! I recommend it to all kids, both young and old.
