Christopher Wormell's magnificent, color-drenched linoleum-block illustrations grace this alphabet book, so handsomely designed it's sure to appeal to discriminating adults as well as to children. The award-winning British artist, whose previous work An Alphabet of Animals took the top graphics prize at the 1990 Bologna Children's Book Fair, has created all new artwork for his latest interpretation of the alphabet, featuring glorious images of animals from armadillo to zorilla (a skunklike creature).
