Have You Ever Seen a Smack of Jellyfish?: An Alphabet Book Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After discovering that a group of ferrets is called a business, Sarah Asper-Smith became fascinated with the intersection of language and the natural world. Using bold prints overlaid on vibrant colors, she created Have You Ever Seen a Smack of Jellyfish? to chronicle the poetic words used to describe the magnificent animal kingdom. From a knot of frogs to a watch of nightingales, the book takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the alphabet with animals as their guide, starting with an army of ants, and ending with a zeal of zebras. The color illustrations and playful use of language will appeal to readers of all ages.

Review:

"First-time author Asper-Smith's background in graphic design is evident in this ABC book devoted to collective nouns. Crisp, eye-popping silhouettes put the animals' shapes (always shown in black) in high relief. A murder of crows perches on a tree's spindly blue branches against a neon green sky (creating a palpable sense of unease), while the yellow-on-pink victim of a 'scourge of mosquitoes' makes their descriptor feel all the more apt. Clean design, attention to detail, and intriguing animal selections — from a 'watch of nightingales' to a 'walk of snails' — make this an elegant primer. Ages 3 — 8. (Jan.)"
