Wild Alphabet: An A to Zoo Pop-Up Book

Dan Green, Mike Haines and Julia Fröhlich, Kingfisher, $19.99 (52p) ISBN 978-0-7534-6472-4

In this small-format alphabet book, wild animals describe their unique characteristics: "I'm no bear! I'm a marsupial—an animal with a pouch," declares a koala. Opposite the text, striking black and white representations of each animal interact with the letters that correspond to their names. A chinchilla runs a treadmill to create a C, a jaguar creeps from behind a bold letter J, and three narwhals swim to form a capital N. The text offers surprising facts about a variety of unusual animals, and kids will enjoy engaging with the modern, interactive design. Ages 3–up. (Sept.)
