Creature ABC Cover

 

Staff Pick

Creature ABC, a smaller, alphabetized (and more affordable!) version of Zuckerman's hit Creature, is equally as magical as the original. Kids and adults alike will be awed and mesmerized by the stunning, detailed photos of wild animals, from alligators to zebras, in not-so-wild environments.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An elegant addition to any library, this deluxe alphabet book features 120 pages of Andrew Zuckerman's breathtaking wildlife photography. From alligator to zebra, each featured animal boasts two striking studio portraits against a clean white background, offering a unique up-close view of the animal kingdom. Readers can flip to a helpful glossary in the back for extra information. From the sleek beauty of a smiling hippo to the powerful majesty of a roaring lion, this gorgeous new book is both a stunning work of art and a ferociously fun way for young animal-lovers to learn their ABCs.

Review:

"Zuckerman's striking animal photographs are put to excellent use in this book — part abecedarian, part guessing game. Each letter is given two spreads. The first shows the letter in upper and lower case next to an animal; the second reveals the animal's name and offers a different view of the creature. Some touches are especially clever: a kangaroo and a lion seem to stare at each other during an interlude between K and L, and while the rest of the book features stark white backgrounds, the letter N is shown against black — a page turn uncovers a group of nocturnal animals. All ages. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
