Synopsis

Mice, Morals and Monkey Business by Christopher Wormell

The celebrated picture book from illustrator Christopher Wormell is now available for the first time in an appealing board book format that's perfect for toddler hands. This durable board book edition of Christopher Wormell's critically acclaimed New Alphabet of Animals is sure to be a hit with children who are too young to handle the cloth-bound edition. His vivid, linoleum-block prints of exotic and unusual animals, from armadillo to zorilla, form a delightful and surprising alphabet. Christopher Wormell's compelling and colourful artwork has won him admirers amongst children and adults alike. His first book for children, An Alphabet of Animals , started as a series of simple and colourful illustrations for his son, and eventually grew into a book that took the prestigious Graphics Prize at the Bologna International Children's Book Fair in 1991.

Reviews

The New Alphabet of Animals is simply magnificent. A very satisfying strength lies throughout this book. Times Educational Supplement
