Publisher Comments:

Feast your eyes on these amazing creatures before they disappear.  This stampede of wild animals, from Chinese Alligator to Grevy's Zebra, are so rare, they're all endangered.  David McLiman's bold and playful illustrations transform each letter into a work of art, graphically rendered with animal characteristics.  Scales, horns, even insect wings transform the alphabet into animated life.


Once you take this eye-opening safari, you'll never look at letters or animals with the same way again.  A striking work of art and a zoological adventure, Gone Wild is sure to be loved by children and adults alike.

As a Lang. Arts middle school teacher,
I was looking for an ABC book that sparked
my students interest.

Such is the book "Gone Wild" !

The theme is about endangered animals --
and each letter depicts either a critically endangered, endangered, or vulnerable creature, including the St. Helena Earwig.

I give this ABC book a 5-star rating!
