About this title


Linoleum block prints produced the art which portrays both unusual and familiar animals, one for each letter of the alphabet.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-- Each letter of the alphabet is portrayed by both unusual and familiar animals through the use of dramatic woodcut prints. The right-hand page contains the animal's picture, which is boldly framed with a broad, black line. Its facing page displays the letter to be emphasized as well as the animal's name. Both upper- and lower-case letters are done in large typeface. Most of the animals are portrayed in earth tones of golds, browns, rust, and black, with an occasional use of red, purple, or sea green playing with the use of light and shadow and lending consistency and cohesion. Small prints of the animals and their upper-case letters form a unique table of contents. Wormell concludes with an index, which repeats the prints with their lower-case letters. The rich, heavy cream-colored paper and a dark green cloth cover contribute to the book's appeal. A handsome, highly useful choice. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH
