A fantastical alliterative journey through the animal kingdom with thousands of alphabetically arranged images and ideas to discover along the way, from An Armoured Armadillo through Great Green Gorillas to Zany Zebra’s Zigzagging in Zinc Zeppelins.
More than three million copies of Animalia have been sold around the world, making Graeme Base’s amazing alliterative alphabet book one of the most beloved titles of the past quarter century. To celebrate thirty years, Abrams is proud to publish a special anniversary edition. Animalia’s incredible imaginary world intrigues all readers. Each page includes hidden objects and ideas: start with “A is for An Armoured Armadillo Avoiding an Angry Alligator” and you’ll find aprons, ants, aces, Atom-brand anchovies, and much more. The rest of the alphabet is just as much fun!
