Animalia is a book like no other. It has the most gorgeously detailed art, it is an alphabet book, a guessing game, and a virtual feast for the eyes. Each page features one letter and images related to that letter — as well as a hidden picture of Graeme Base as a child, Animalia will entrance any child or adult who enters its fantastical world.
