9781619639546: Gone Wild

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 gifty board edition. The stunning black-and-white visuals are perfect for babies and younger children.

About the Author:

David McLimans won the Caldecott Honor for his first book, Gone Wild: An Endangered Animal Alphabet, as well as numerous awards for his editorial illustration, including an Award of Excellence from the Society of Newspaper Designers and a Certificate of Excellence from Print magazine. He is also the creator of Gone Fishing and Big Turtle. His work has appeared the Washington Post, AIGA, Time, the New York Times, the Progressive, Atlantic Monthly, and Harper's.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3 Up–Although organized as a conventional alphabet book, the letters here are far from ordinary. McLimans has created a black-and-white iconic representation of 26 endangered animals, and his art is striking. For example, the newt's eyes protrude slightly from the sides of N, while its tongue emerges from the lower point. An accompanying box on each page includes a small, stylized red-and-white image of the animal plus information about its class, habitat, range, and threats to its survival. Back matter includes a paragraph about each creature along with a list of Web sites for organizations that help endangered animals and books for further reading. This title will serve more as a tool to raise awareness and a place to begin searching for information rather than as a source of facts. However, the arresting graphics and clean design will hold viewers' attention and create interest in the topic. The book could also serve as a starting point for art and design projects for students well above elementary school age.–Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
