Wild Alphabet: An A to Zoo Pop-Up Book

Wild Alphabet: An A to Zoo Pop-Up Book Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With thick pages cut into the shape of each letter, children and parents will enjoy this peek-through guessing game around the letterform itself. Sprinkles, hot fudge, and cherries hint at Iandrsquo;s ice cream sundae, while aquarium accessories hint at Fandrsquo;s fish. As readers interact with the pages, they will familiarize themselves not only with the 26 letters and associated words, but also with each letterandrsquo;s physicalityandmdash;angles, holes, and curves, both front and back. With Peskimoandrsquo;s animated, stylish visuals, this fresh ABC book encourages readers to manipulate the alphabet in a whole new way. Note: illustrations have a retro feel, with imperfect variations in color and texture.

And also available: COUNTABLOCK, with pages cut into the shape of numerals from 1 to 100!

Praise for Alphablock

STARRED REVIEW

andquot;All the parts together make an appealing and fun way for youngsters to interact with the alphabet, and for slightly older children to enjoy the clever artwork.andquot;

andmdash;School Library Journal, starred review

andquot;The straightforward vocabulary, cheery vintage-style graphics, and neat incorporation of cut-out letters make for a sharply designed package.andquot;

andmdash;Publishers Weekly

andquot;With a pleasing, retro feel, Peskimoandrsquo;s art uses bold colors in a slightly muted hue and the weathered look of woodblock printsandhellip; A visually captivating delight for careful little ones.andquot;

andmdash;Kirkus Reviews

andquot;While itandrsquo;s graphically sophisticated enough to please adults, little children can happily flip through this book on their own.andquot;

andmdash;The New York Times

andquot;The baby, toddler or nursery-schooler who tears the gift wrapping off Christopher Franceschelliand#39;s Alphablock may think that she has just opened a toy, for how lively and tactile the thing in her hands will be.andquot;

andmdash;The Wall Street Journal

Review:

"In this small-format alphabet book, wild animals describe their unique characteristics: 'I'm no bear! I'm a marsupial--an animal with a pouch,' declares a koala. Opposite the text, striking black and white representations of each animal interact with the letters that correspond to their names. A chinchilla runs a treadmill to create a C, a jaguar creeps from behind a bold letter J, and three narwhals swim to form a capital N. The text offers surprising facts about a variety of unusual animals, and kids will enjoy engaging with the modern, interactive design. Ages 3 — up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Animals literally jump off the page in this illustrated pop-up featuring 26 wild animals hiding within the pages of the book. Antelope bursts through the letter A; Leopard lurches from behind L; Giraffe, reaches a long neck over G; Koala carrys her baby around K and Penguin waddles out from behind P . . . with accompanying key facts about each animal, this is a book that readers and animal lovers of all ages will treasure and enjoy for years to come.
