Gone Wild for the Wee Reader

This truly special alphabet book is filled with a stampede of wild animals, from Chinese Alligator to Grevy's Zebra--and they're all so rare, they're endangered. David McLimans's bold and playful illustrations transform each letter into a work of art, boldly rendered with animal characteristics, including scales, horns, and even insect wings. Once you take this eye-opening safari, you'll never look at letters or animals the same way again. This zoological adventure--and winner of a Caldecott Honor medal--has been reformatted as a board book perfect for babies and younger children.

Available from Bloomsbury Kids and Walker Books
