Summary (From the publisher):

Although it borrows its form from a children's ABC, Lettered Creatures is a thoroughly grown-up pleasure, a light-hearted product of civilization like champagne, fireworks, or the Cole Porter songbook. A collaboration between two talented brothers—one a leading poet of his generation, the other a peerless draftsman—this alphabet book is the expression of a singular family wit, one born in precise observation matched with intellectual playfulness. Each spread introduces us to an emblematic animal—an insatiable Anteater, an overachieving Beaver, a sidelong-searching Crab—captured in an eight-line poem and a delicate graphite drawing.
