Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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!

Review:

"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

Review:

"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

Review:

"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

Review:

"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

Synopsis:

Graeme Base's best-selling amazing alliterative alphabet book — more than three million copies in print world-wide.

ToadKnits, October 9, 2012 (view all comments by ToadKnits)
This classic alphabet book was one of my favorites in childhood and holds up over time. It makes a terrific gift for new parents and young children.

The illustrations provide endless hours of fascination (both for children on their own and children and parents together). Each one includes a hidden self-portrait of author/illustrator Base himself, as a little boy, and finding all of them took my family several years. The book is truly a work of art.
