Industry Reviews

A is for Australian Animals combines animal facts with detailed, delightful illustrations. There is one or more animal for every letter of the alphabet, with each given a page or spread containing several facts about the animal against illustrations bringing both the animal and its environment to life.
Combining Lessac's gouache illustration style with a range of facts, A is for Australian Animals is both visually and mentally engaging.
Suitable for schools and home enjoyment.
