This stunning book takes Maree Coote's Letter Art to the next level, while telling amusing stories of the very "human" idiosyncrasies of the animal kingdom.

Striking color and exciting imagery make each page a masterpiece. Accompanied by an amusing verse, every image is a typographic portrait of each animal, created using only the letters of each animal’s name.

The exact fonts used are provided in a key on each page to make it easier to hunt and find all the letter-shapes that spell each animal portrait.

This is a beautifully produced book by an international award-winning illustrator. Includes Teachers’ Notes Information on typography and animal facts.
