An Animal ABC by Alice Pattullo

An Animal ABC by Alice Pattullo


This is a stunning art and reference book for children, and adults, to pore over. This Animal ABC features the dazzling A is for Armadillo and G is for Grizzly Bear, O is for Okapi and V is for Viper. This strange menagerie of animals will delight with its curious selection of creatures in wonderful popping colours. With a lovely rhyme running throughout, this will delight children of all ages. Printed on extra-thick paper and with very high design and production values, this is a truly wonderful ABC to treasure.


This is a stunning book. Each page is a letter of the alphabet and has an illustration of an animal beginning with that letter. What is really lovely and unique about this book is the fact it has the English name for the animal and what I believe maybe the Latin name for it also.

As an adult I loved going through the book, there were some animals in there that I had never heard of, I really liked that the author didn't necessarily choose the obvious animals for that letter. The artwork is in printed form, it reminded me of the work of Warhol in that respect with bright colours and almost a screen print effect.

This book would be prefect for a child who loves to discover new animals or is an animal fanatic. There will be lots they could learn from this and share with others, names of unusual animals or perhaps try to remember the Latin name for a few.

I would recommend this book to children and adults. We spent a good hour going through the book, the paper is of high quality and the cover being hardback will protect for many years to come.

I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
