About the book

This adorable book is written in rhyme and is published in board book format - two winners for ages 2-5 years old.  The incredible author/illustrator Charles Fuge has created a book that little ones will ask for over and over again.  

The author has taken some of the sweetest animals:  ducks, platypuses, toads and frogs, Asian elephants, rhinos, penguins, sloths and bats, just to name a few, and seemingly makes them come alive on each and every page.  The animals are designed  with amazing detail and expression enriching and emboldening the    wee reader to turn the page to see which baby is up next to meet.

The fact that Charles chooses less familiar animals to showcase is wonderful because it gives the book an educational edge.  "Animal Babies"  is sure to delight readers of all ages and is highly recommended by Storwraps.

Meet the author/ illustrator 

Charles Fuge was brought up in Bath, England, where a fanatical interest in wildlife translated into the drawing of animals. At Camberwell School of Art (where he was tutored by renowned illustrator John Lawrence), Fuge won the Macmillan Prize in 1988 for Bush Vark's First Day Out. This book then won the Mother Goose Award the following year, and a career in children's book illustration began. Fuge has since illustrated nearly 50 picture books, including the hugely successful Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball by Vicki Churchill, which was runner-up for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2001. He lives in Dorset with his partner, Sarah, and their 9-year-old son, Oliver, and continues to write and illustrate for children.
