Children’s Book Review: Animalia by Graeme Base, Author ABRAMS $ (32p) ISBN

Archived from the original on 16 December It can take a very long time to read this 32 page book, not because the grqeme takes that long to read, but the illustrations are so profuse that it can take ages to find everything on each page.

Animalia was first published inthree years before The Eleventh Hour. In fact, the book’s introduction encourages it.

This is one of those children’s books that I bought long before I had a child. Now I do believe and even realise that Animalia has a lot of what I would baase “kid appeal” but for someone like me, with less than stellar eyesight, the sheer masses of hidden objects can easily prove to be a bit massively overwhelming at best.


Each letter is repeated in an alliterative sentence. The never-gonna-stop nephew looked at this for graemr hour looking for all the little deta LOVE! But there are also several other drawings that start with the consonant. Some of the reviewers mentioned violence in the book. Animalia is an alliterative alphabet book and contains twenty-six illustrations, one for each letter of the alphabet.

And I even liked the way he graemd the letter ‘X’ – it can be such a troublesome letter and there was nary a xylophone in sight.
