Synopsis

Alphabets are Amazing Animals by Anushka Ravishankar

Kind Kiwis Kiss Kangaroos; Lazy Lions Lick Lollipops; Plump Penguins Play Ping Pong...There is no end to the things animals get up to in this quirkily alliterative alphabet book. Anushka Ravishankar's text plays with words: their sounds, rhythms, and meanings, combining into sentences that are syntactically precise, yet managing to conjure up the kind of absurd goings-on guaranteed to tickle every child's imagination. Christiane Pieper's joyful art brings these curious and happy scenes to life - every page in the book is a story in itself.
