Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An embarrassment of pandas, a galaxy of starfish, a shiver of sharks...these are all collective nouns used to describe their groups. Woop Studios, acclaimed for their work on the Harry Potter movies, has illustrated these quirky phrases, creating a series of extraordinarily beautiful art that has been collected here for the first time. The colorful introduction to animals and the alphabet is accessible for young children, while the gorgeous, whimsical art and clever wordplay make it perfect for design-savvy parents and inspired gift givers. Longer than the standard picture book, with high design and production values, this is a volume readers will want on their coffee tables in addition to their child's bookshelf.

Review:

"From the graphic designers of the Harry Potter franchise, this ABC book of collective nouns couples informative text with digitally created tableaus reminiscent of vintage posters that wryly play on the terms. A 'galaxy' of starfish takes on a celestial appearance en masse; an 'ostentation' of peacocks ('they make excellent ‘guards' ') stands at attention in a spread with hints of Andy Warhol; a 'pandemonium' of parrots perches at awkward angles, vibrating against a lime green backdrop; and a 'troubling' of goldfish swims outside a glass bowl, suggesting a world turned topsy-turvy. The thoughtful and provocative portraits will leave readers teasing out their subtleties. All ages. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
