High Concepts New picture books promote and chicly present educational concepts. In a kind of companion to his The New Alphabet of Animals (PW described the art as ""strikingly iconic""), Christopher Wormell uses his bold, lino-cut prints to count animal characteristics in Teeth, Tails, & Tentacles: An Animal Counting Book. From ""one rhinoceros horn"" to the ""20 barnacle shells"" on a humpback whale, he hits many of children's favorite inhabitants of land and sea. Brief paragraphs on each creature and an elegantly designed cloth cover complete this handsome presentation. (Aug.) .
