Product description

Antbear, bushbaby, crocodile… this African alphabet brings together exotic creatures of all shapes and sizes in dazzling illustrations, accompanied by simple rhymes! Created by a Southern African artist, this beautiful A-Z is full of pictures of animals engaged in typical activities. Nature notes at the end of the book provide information about the habitat and behaviour patterns of each animal.

“A lovely rhyming alphabet book… Philippa-Alys Browne’s distinctive illustrations burst onto the page in an array of colours and tribal patterns. The text’s simple rhyming patterns can easily be memorised by infants.” Action Aid

“Full of undeniably stunning watercolour illustrations, weaving richly coloured tribal patterns into the animal shapes and providing… Nature Notes on less familiar beasts such as the xoona moth and the dassie.” Times Educational Supplement

“The strong stylised drawings are works of art as much as naturalistic interpretations. They convey the richness of the African scene and its changing patterns of season and weather. Altogether a distinguished book with a serious purpose and an independent viewpoint.” Junior Bookseller
