paperback ISBN 13: 9781509801640 | ISBN 10: 1509801642
A hugely entertaining animal ABC guessing game with peep-through pages and amazing fold-out flaps, by the bestselling Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, and award-winning illustrator Sharon King-Chai.
With eye-catching artwork and an exotic array of animals to marvel over, this is a gorgeous book to treasure and read over and over again - can you guess who has more legs than a butterfly? And who is wrinklier than a hedgehog?
Each page draws you further into a beautifully vibrant world of huge elephants, slithery snakes and growling tigers, inviting you to compare one animal to another and learn comparison words and adjectives from the natural world.
Sharon King-Chai's brightly colourful art and the cleverly designed shaped pages make Animalphabet a rich delight, while Julia Donaldson's rhythmic words are a pleasure to read aloud. Shortlisted for the D&AD Awards 2019 and the winner of the Chen Bochui International Children's Literature Award.
