Within the pages of this book
You may discover, if you look
Beyond the spell of written words,
A hidden land of beasts and birds…
But there’s so much to find and name
Let’s start off with a smaller game.
Just four for now – some big, some small.
Now off you go to find them all!

So turn the pages, lift the flaps and rediscover the world of Animalia through fresh eyes – it’s the alphabet as only Graeme Base could imagine it!
