Synopsis

Mice, Morals and Monkey Business by Christopher Wormell

Award-winning illustrator Christopher Wormell brings his vivid artwork to the classic Aesops Fables, a cornerstone of childrens literature, in a visual feast to delight both children and adults. Gorgeous linoleum block prints illustrate a key moment in the story, highlighting the moral printed in Wormells hand-cut typeface on the opposite page. This simple approach encourages parent-child interaction through storytelling, while an appendix provides each tale in more detail, along with a thumbnail of the illustration. Wormells childrens books are so beautiful that they double as adult art and gift books.

Reviews

The New Alphabet of Animals is simply magnificent. A very satisfying strength lies throughout this book. Times Educational Supplement The best present for the smallest people you know is definitely Teeth, Tails and Tentacles, Christopher Wormell's exquisite volume of linoleum-block prints.
