first publication date:  1968

CDB! is a children's picture book written and illustrated by William Steig, who later won the Caldecott Medal in 1970 for Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. The book, published in 1968 by Simon & Schuster, is a collection of pictures with captions written in code, with letters in the caption standing for words the letter's names sound like (gramograms). The illustrations that accompany the codes show scenes that help the reader decode the caption. The cover illustration shows a child pointing out a bee to another child. The title, CDB!, thus translates as "See (CEE) the (DEE) bee (BEE)!" The book was updated by Steig over thirty years after its original publication with the addition of color to the illustrations, as well as an answer key at the end. Steig followed this book with a sequel, CDC? Source: Wikipedia (en)
