More than three million copies of Animalia have been sold around the world, making Graeme Base's amazing alliterative alphabet book one of the most beloved titles of the past quarter century. To celebrate thirty years, Abrams is proud to publish a special anniversary edition. Animalia's incredible imaginary world intrigues all readers. Each page includes hidden objects and ideas: start with "A is for An Armoured Armadillo Avoiding an Angry Alligator" and you'll find aprons, ants, aces, Atom-brand anchovies, and much more. The rest of the alphabet is just as much fun!

Wow--seeing this again made me remember how much I loved it as a kid. Stunning illustrations.

I loved this book as a child! I picked it up for my students and I think I enjoyed reading it again more than they did! I love the Crimson cats and the Nautical Newts!!! One of my favourite alphabet books. My only qualm is that some of the letter words are a bit difficult. The kids dont know what 'nautical' or 'abacus'.

This book celebrates 30 years this year! So much in here to engage young readers. My favourite page of course is "Lazy lions lounging in the local library"...! What's yours?

An alphabet book with sentences written only in the given letter. The images mimic these silly sentences with Bases realistic art style. Even the additional images all start with said letter. Finally there is the hide and seek element that the author warns about in the front page; some are just a single body part, so it can be difficult to spot.
