KIRKUS REVIEW

Familiar and unfamiliar creatures of the wild are reproduced in all their furry splendor in this marvelous introduction to the alphabet and to the zoo. F stands for one winsome fennec, V for a round little vari and Q for a perched feathered quetzal. These lesser known animals share the stage with a family-centered lion quartet, a darkly watchful mink and the most majestic tiger anywhere. An idealized menagerie as conceived by the talented Caldecott winner invites children to reach out and pet, though a trip to the zoo with a judicious guide will inhibit that urge. Animals are in two and three luminous colors. A beautiful gift item.
