From the weird and wonderful imagination of an amazing new artist comes an alphabet book like no other. Kids will delight in discovering animals from A to Z living together in an old Victorian mansion. They'll meet an elephant in the ballroom playing with a model train, an octopus hanging from the foyer chandelier -- and even a zebra enjoying a soak in the bathtub! Using watercolours and colored pencils, Wallace Edwards has created a bizarre and luxurious world, rich in texture and detail. An engaging mix of art and alphabet book, Alphabeasts provides the basis for hours of animated discussion and quiet contemplation.

The illustrations in this picture book are absolutely stunning. Wallace Edwards was quoted as saying that "it didn't start as a book; it ws originally just a series of animal drawings to correspond to letters of the alphabet - a project that kept growing" ( see Toronto Star July 26th 2013 for full quote)
