Find the Animal ABC

Demi. Grosset & Dunlap, $12.95 (47pp) ISBN 978-0-448-18970-3

Dazzling color pictures and striking drawings in mellow gray and white are the attractions in Demi's inventive alphabet-game book. Instructions on how to play precede pages where the upper- and lower-case letters are boxed with a closeup of an animal, bird or fish. The object is to match this image with its duplicate among a myriad of other creatures. Sometimes the hider is incorporated into a bigger portrait of itself on which appear dozens slightly different from the original. Demi delivers the answers at the end of the book, where readers find another challenge that sends them back all the way again through alligators, birds, camels, etc., searching for cat, the most elusive character in the fool-the-eye exercise.
