From Acorn to Zoo

And Everything in Between in Alphabetical Order

Publisher: Andersen Press

Review

This is an alphabet book with a difference, in which the unexpected is juxtaposed with the everyday to sometimes surreal effect.

Amusing and inventive, bright and colourful, fabulously illustrated in Kitamura's trademark quirky style, From Acorn to Zoo is sure to challenge and delight young children.

The additional tableaux below the key letter illustrations, which feature such memorable images as an armadillo balancing an apple and an acorn, an iguana on ice skates and a jaguar eating jelly, are particularly delightful.
