Alphabet Animals

Charles Sullivan, Author, Rizzoli, Author Rizzoli International Publications $15.95 (56p) ISBN 978-0-8478-1377-3
This latest entry into the crowded field of ABC books is a contemplative trip through the animal kingdom as depicted through fine art. Illustrated with paintings, photographs and sculptures that represent a fair, broad cross-section of time periods and techniques, this volume is a feast for the eyes. Each letter of the alphabet designates a different animal or closely related subject (i.e., ``V'' for veterinarian), and each spread contains both a clear identification of the illustration and a concise biographical sketch of the artist. Unfortunately, the striking visuals are accompanied by trite, forced poems that often detract from the mood set by the art. The reproductions here are of exceptionally high quality and will better serve young readers as an art appreciation resource than as a basic letter-recognition tool--for which any number of serviceable titles exist. All ages. (Sept.)
