Description



About the Book



Base's masterful illustrations will sweep readers into a world of richly colored and intricately illustrated animals and objects with the turn of every page. "A delightful visual feast."--"Publishers Weekly."



Book Synopsis



"A delightful visual feast . . . The meticulous artistry is far-reaching in its innovation, detail, and humor."--Publishers Weekly

Within the page of this book
You may discover, if you look
Beyond the spell of written words
A hidden land of beasts and birds . . .

Animalia is a book like no other. Abounding with fanciful, gorgeously detailed art, it is an alphabet book, a guessing game, and a virtual feast for the eyes. Each page features one letter and images related to that letter--as well as a hidden picture of Graeme Base as a child! Animalia will entrance any child or adult who enters its fantastical world.

"A tongue-twisting menagerie . . . [in] a perfectly delightful alphabet book."--Charles Gibson, Good Morning America



Review Quotes




"A delightful visual feast . . . if books could be honored for the sheer number of hours readers could pore over crammed pages, and for the inexhaustible supply of extra touches, this one surely would be a winner."--Publisher's Weekly

"Careful observation reveals many less obvious objects and creatures, all beginning with the same letter. The illustrations are mixed media and are fun to look at."--Children's Literature

"This beautiful book contains thirteen small tales about those who live in harmony with Animalia, kingdom of the animals...Each tale captures wisdom about the world we share with animals. This is a beautiful book in every sense."--The Hungry Mind Review
