Animaliaby Graeme Base
Synopses & Reviews
More than three million copies of Animalia have been sold around the world, making Graeme Base's amazing alliterative alphabet book one of the most beloved titles of the past quarter century. To celebrate 25 years, Abrams is proud to publish a special anniversary edition. Animalia's incredible imaginary world intrigues all readers, whether or not they know their ABCs. Each page includes hidden objects and ideas: start with "A is for An Armoured Armadillo Avoiding an Angry Alligator" and you'll find aprons, ants, aces, Atom-brand anchovies, and much more. The rest of the alphabet is just as much fun!
"Base's monumental effort will not go unrewarded; 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." Publishers Weekly
"The Fine art of the full-color alphabet book is raised to new heights....Kids will love the outrageous illustrations, and get a kick out of the letter hunt." Child magazine
"So extraordinary, so extravagantly illustrated, so astonishingly alliterative, so thoroughly delightful that any child who does not soon possess it may rightly feel his education has been shamefully neglected." San Francisco Chronicle
"The ultimate alphabet book, loved for its look and playful language. Base is known for his beautiful, detailed illustrations and Animalia, populated mostly by animals, is his best-known and most-loved book." Sydney Morning Herald
Graeme Base's best-selling amazing alliterative alphabet book — more than three million copies in print world-wide.
Among the ruins of Angkor Wat, Tiger, Monkey, Water Buffalo, and Gecko argue over who would make the greatest king. An ancient elephant suggests a race to the top of the hill to prove each creatureandrsquo;s speed, strength, and cunning. But along the way, their strengths and weaknesses are revealed. Will any of them be good enough to be king?
Graeme Baseandrsquo;s luscious illustrations of the Cambodian temple complex Angkor Watandmdash;one of the most beautiful ruins in existence and known to people all over the worldandmdash;are combined with a search-and-find feature in this exciting new tale! A brief history of the temple is included.
Praise for The Last King of Angkor Wat
andquot;This simple morality tale is lifted to loveliness by Baseandrsquo;s gorgeous digital illustrations, majestic and richly colored, filled with characteristic detail and intricately bordered. These pages beckon readers to return again and again to pore over the details.andquot;
