Alphabeasts Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the weird and wonderful imagination of an amazing new artist comes an alphabet book like no other. Kids will delight in discovering animals from A to Z living together in an old Victorian mansion. They?ll meet an elephant in the ballroom playing with a model train, an octopus hanging from the foyer chandelier — and even a zebra enjoying a soak in the bathtub!

Using watercolours and colored pencils, Wallace Edwards has created a bizarre and luxurious world, rich in texture and detail. An engaging mix of art and alphabet book, Alphabeasts provides the basis for hours of animated discussion and quiet contemplation.

Review:

"Edwards' first picture book evokes a contemplative mood, inviting us to feel the beautifully rendered textures of skin and fur, and to speculate about the pictured situations as a hippo prepares to play a violin and a yak paints itself into a corner." Gwyneth Evans, Quill & Quire

Review:

"An explosion of color and pattern are the central attraction in this otherwise confusing abecedary....But while there's much to look at, the visual references seem more suited to adults than younger readers." Publishers Weekly
