Do you know the name of this children's book?

Asked by gravity (3116points) June 27th, 2011

This was a beautifully illustrated alphabet book that had pictures of items and animals that began with each letter as you went through the alphbet. They were “hidden” in the illustrations, sort of like in a “Where’s Waldo” book. They were magically vivid and very colorful illustrations. I would love to buy this book for my nieces and nephews if I can find it. The book, as I remember it, was a large hardback book but not a thick book. For some reason I believe there may have been “blocks” of pictures on each page maybe. Any ideas on the name or illustrator?

I’m probably wrong because it doesn’t entirely fit the description you give, but it’s worth a shot…

Could it have been an I Spy book?

There is also The Ultimate Alphabet , which is extraordinary, but it is definitely not for children.

@dappled_leaves Yes! It is a book by Graeme Base! I remember the animalia book but was actually looking for his book, The Sign of the Seahorse” with it’s great story underwater and the fabulous illustrations. Thank you for the help! I love the story although it is sort of long for younger children. It reminds me of my other favorite kid’s book of poetry by Jack Prelutsky, The Dragon’s are Singing Tonight. Great twisty poems of dragons and the pics are really great too. Check them both out!

Yay @dappled_leaves! As long as @gravity got hooked up with the right book, I don’t mind being wrong, and sometimes I do, trust me. :-).

I instantly thought of Animalia too. Beautiful book.
