(1-84148-216-1) and African Animals ABC (9-7818-4686-3615) Stella lives with her family in Somerset. Philippa Alys-Browne was born and has lived in Zimbabwe for most of her life. She graduated in Fine Art in 1984 and has exhibited regularly in Harare and the UK. She has illustrated African Animals ABC (9-7818-4686-3615) for Barefoot Books.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-Decorative, unusual full-page illustrations, bordered by brightly patterned frames with scalloped black edges, depict an interesting variety of 24 creatures with their babies. Codfish, penguins, dragonflies, and otters appear along with the more common rabbits, frogs, horses, and pigs. Notes at the end supply additional information about each species, describing its habitat and life cycle. Rather than showing the animals realistically, the artwork emphasizes dynamic shapes and brilliant colors. The goats' coats are splashed with flowers, the moose are purple and the pigs blue, and the tigers have turquoise stripes. Browne is from Zimbabwe, and her stunning work reflects African textile design and artistic techniques. Although not scientifically realistic, the pictures are exciting and handsome.
