animalphabetAnimalphabet by Julia Donaldson, illus. Sharon King-Chai. Pub. MacMillan, 2020.

Very cleverly designed, illustrated and written picture book for juniors and pre-school children. The unity of illustrations and text has never been better. This alphabet picture book will blow your mind.

The written text is enormously clever and demands to be read aloud. It starts with an Ant, but who is prettier than an Ant? of course it is a butterfly but it hasn’t as many legs as a caterpillar and a caterpillar is not as big as an elephant.

But who is pinker than an elephant? and the question of them all who can sing better than a Mole? Read it and find out. Covers air, land and sea creatures.

Sharon King-Chai’s illustrations are superb and the cuttings and flaps in the pages and cover once opened reveal something about the story.

The best picture book so far this year.
