(From the publisher):
Animalia is an alphabet book and contains twenty six illustrations, one for each letter of the alphabet. Each illustration features an animal from the animal kingdom (A is for alligator, B is for butterfly, etc). The illustrations contain dozens of small objects that the curious reader can try to identify. For the more experienced, the author has hidden a picture of himself as a child in every picture.
Animalia is much more than A is for Apple. The letters of the alphabet explode into images that delight the eye and words that thrill the ear: A is for An Armoured Armadillo Avoiding An Angry Alligator. Here's an incredible imaginary world that will intrigue youngsters of all ages, whether or not they know their ABCs.
