Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
This animal alphabet presents brief, jaunty rhymes about creatures from angelfish and boa constrictor through frog, giraffe, monkey and narwhal, to quetzal, rhinoceros, yak, and zebra. Bits of information are presented with humor. The brightly painted creatures are placed against varying backgrounds and colors that tend to help them stand out: the tiger's orange against black; the lion's orange against a blue sky; the green iguana against a violet backdrop. Although recognizable, they are comic, almost cartoon-y in their attractiveness. The upper and lower case letters of the alphabet march across the end pages. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Kirkus Reviews
Bouncy animal rhymes from Angelfish to Zebra. A generous and varied conpendium of beastly paintings and verses, from the Crocodile ("When animals come to the river to drink, / I watch for a minute or two") to the Giraffe ("I really don't care / When my head's in the air / And my cheek's getting kissed by a cloud") to the Narwhal ("The ocean's swimming unicorn") to the Tiger ("His eyes shine like lights / In the darkest of nights"). Other animals include the Yak, Jellyfish, Boa Constrictor, Dolphin, Penguin and Vulture. The eclectic mix allows Quetzal and X-Ray Fish to fill those troublesome Q and X slots with ease. Wojtowycz's illustrations are a riot of fluourescent color; green Iguanas rest on brown tree branches against a hot-pink background (the letters Ii backgrounded in bright yellow), for example. Bright the colors may be, but the humor is frequently agreeably subtle; Zebra winks raffishly at readers as he proclaims, "I've got stripes, / Which my ladyfriend likes / Since they make me look handsome and cool." This is just what it should be—alittle learning and a lot of breezy fun. (Picture book. 3-6)
