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.

Industry Reviews

"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
