Alphabeasts

Reviewed: August 26, 2003
By: Wallace Edwards
Publisher: Kids Can Press
32 pages, $19.95

Alphabeasts deserves to be mentioned this week just because itís delightful. Wallace Edwards has provided us with a magically realistic house in which an alphabet of animals can be found doing the most improbable things.

A is for Alligator, awake from a dream (see the cover image)

B is for Bat, slurping ice cream (bat hovering over still-life dish)

C is for Cat, who reflects on itself (seeing a tiger in the mirror)

And so it goes. There are a lot of things to examine in each picture. Whole stories could be developed from each watercolour and coloured pencil image in this slightly oversized hardcover.
