“D” is for?

#33 in an ongoing series of posts celebrating the alphabet.

Just read this great review at Book Aunt about The Rock & Roll Alphabet by Jeffrey Schwartz, with photos by Chuck Boyd (Mojo Hand, 2011). Definitely a cool way to learn your ABCs, with rhyming couplets to read aloud and wonderful vintage photos.

BUT. As much as I love the DOORS, I just have to ask: WHAT ABOUT DYLAN?

For consolation, I’m going to make some meatballs (a Dylan fave), and Cornelius says he might just tip back a few drops of Jack Daniels, even though he usually doesn’t drink. Sigh.

More alphabetica here.

 Certified authentic alphabetica. Made by hand with love and serious Dylan withdrawal.

  1. Yes, “D” is Definitely for Dylan. And I don’t remember who “W” was, but it should have been Stevie Wonder instead. At least they got “S” is for Santana right!


    1. Glad you agree — and happy that you’re officially the first person to comment on this new blog. Thanks, Barb! And yes, Stevie should have been included too. 🙂


  2. well, this is a start. there’s a whole world of rock and roll book that need to be written, for all ages, especially for teens. still, glad to see this rolling on, “flaws” and all.
