An alphabet book that keeps adults interested: Animalia by Graeme Base

Illustration of young Base and the letter A

A young Base hides among dozens of objects for each letter: this alphabet book is absorbing no matter your age

Animalia is a classic Australian picture book by Graeme Base. I have delightful memories of eating gelato with my sister after buying this book as a gift for the children of some friends I was about to visit. K and myself, aged in our late twenties at the time, spent over half an hour spotting different things in its beautifully detailed pictures and I think we only got to the letter O.
