Show synopsis This volume is a collection of paintings of an alphabet of animals, from Armadillo to Zebra. Each illustrations is accompanied by a brief description of the animal and its chief habits and characteristics. The animals depicted range from an exotic umbrella bird to a familiar parrot, an elegant seahorse to a common newt, a dragon-like iguana to a delicate hummingbird, and are drawn from every continent of the world. Younger readers should enjoy matching letters to names, while older children should find much of interest in the snippets of information about each creature. A special page is reserved for "x-tinct" animals to add to the conservation message. Other titles by Isabelle Brent include "The Christmas Story", "Cameo Cats" and "Noah's Ark".
