Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

What a fantastic book!  The illustrations are truly amazing.  Who could create such irresistible characters out of crocodiles and make the reader feel so many emotions as they traverse the pages?  Why Emma Ward a silver medal winner of the 2020 Key Colours Illustrations Competition that's who! 

Poor Doris.  She is a gharial crocodile who is overwhelmed by her 26 naughty, misbehaving brood.  She takes charge and tries to manage and conquer the mayhem that the hatchlings create daily in their home.  With 26 little active ones can she reign them all in and finally have the peace she strives for? 

This is a fun book about a stressed-out mother crocodile and her dilinquent babies whose names all start with a specific letter of the alphabet.  The good news is that she does accomplish her goal but you have to read the book to find out how.  Trust me she needs a medal for her mothering skills.  Kids will laugh along as they learn or review the 26 letters of the alphabet. 

The illustrations are phenomenal. They are extremely detailed, full of action, emotion and fun.  The colour pallet chosen is subtle and perfect  for the tale.   This is an alphabet book that kid's can sink their teeth into and I highly recommend it!
