Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A padded cover, soothing pastel colors, and pudgy cartoon animals result in an appealing introduction to the alphabet. Capital letters appear on square flaps (four per spread) that resemble building blocks; next to each flap is a chunky, (usually) head-on portrait of an animal that represents that letter. When readers open the flaps, they see the lower-case form of the letter and the name of the animal. Less familiar animals like a newt, iguana, porcupine, and quail should add to youngest readers’ animal repertoire. Ages 4–8. Agent: Jean Sagendorph, Mansion Street Literary Management. (Mar.)
From the Publisher
Kirkus Reviews
Zoo inhabitants put on the charm in this gentle alphabet offering. Each of the 26 letters is represented by a character worthy of embracing. Each page is divided into brightly colored quadrants, with an animal and its letter occupying squares next to each letter. The capital letter is on a flap; lift the flap to reveal the lowercase letter on the other side and the name of the animal. …The solid bookmaking and padded cover make this appropriate for the youngest audience. Probably the book's greatest asset is its muted palette, which works with the graphically abstract animal shapes to provide effective but quiet contrast. An eclectic and soothing selection. (Board book. 3 mos.-2)
School Library Journal
PreS-K—From the padded cover with its rickracklike binding and large, block polka-dot letters to the whimsical display of pudgy critters, this appealing alphabet book will attract children. Every page includes two small, sturdy flaps, each labeled with a capital letter. Next to the flap, a sweetly rounded animal faces readers. As a flap is lifted, the name of the animal is revealed along with the featured letter in lowercase. Most of the animals are readily recognizable with the possible exception of the "Quail," "Upland Gorilla," and "X-ray Fish." An attractive combination of colors, many of which are pastel hues, is pleasing to the eye, and the book's simplicity renders it both charming and useful.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI

Zoo inhabitants put on the charm in this gentle alphabet offering. Each of the 26 letters is represented by a character worthy of embracing. Each page is divided into brightly colored quadrants, with an animal and its letter occupying squares next to each letter. The capital letter is on a flap; lift the flap to reveal the lowercase letter on the other side and the name of the animal. The animals stand at attention facing front, their round faces often towering over their feet. Choices include animals mostly familiar to older toddlers (D for dog, K for kangaroo), though there is the occasional infelicitous surprise (U stands for upland gorilla), and filing bunny under B instead of R (for rabbit) is a dubious decision. Q is for quail (ho-hum), and X is the hard-working X-ray fish. The solid bookmaking and padded cover make this appropriate for the youngest audience. Probably the book's greatest asset is its muted palette, which works with the graphically abstract animal shapes to provide effective but quiet contrast. An eclectic and soothing selection.
