Synopsis

Teeth, Tails and Tentacles 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. With every page of this eye-catching board book, children and their parents will delight in counting their way through the animal kingdom, from one rhino horn to twenty barnacles on a humpback whale. 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 lino-cut 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. The New Alphabet of Animals , published by Running Press in 2002, won critical acclaim for the sheer force of its artistry.
