The 'World’s Worst Alphabet Book' Exists And It’s Genius
It all started when two blokes were hanging out with some mutual friends and their kid who was mucking around with some alphabet flashcards.
“We both got a laugh out of the card for “Q” which read: “Q is for Quinoa,” Chris Carpenter, one of the authors behind P Is For Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever said.

It sparked he and co-author Raj Haldar to start a Google document of similar words… they then realised the potential for a children’s book.
This was the result:
P Is For Pterodactyl is available at a bunch of places online, as well as Dymocks and Angus and Robertson bookshops.
