Animal ABC is a funny alphabet primer for babies and young children with silly cartoon animals by Nikolas Ilic. Due out 20th July 2021, it's 26 pages and will be available in boardbook format. This is a very colorful and appealing book for both the youngest babies and toddlers as well as their caregivers. I have three kids of my own (and assorted nieces, nephews, and other small human friends) and I have experienced the same near-horror of reading "Goodnight Moon" for the 5 millionth time. It's good to have alternatives. This book is fun, unambiguous, creative, and *short* with a nice selection of alphabet animals which are outside the cookie-cutter norm (yes, fox, pig, and zebra are here, but so are narwhal, quetzal, and urial). The art is full of whimsy and humor and the simple text includes some factoid tidbits (narwhal's tusk is actually a tooth! who knew?). Very cute book, well written and full of adorable animals. Rugged boardbook format. I like it! Five stars. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes. Added to NG Review only: This review was for a duplicate listing on the NG website for (apparently) the same book in the same format with pricing for US and UK releases. Comparisons of the two download eARCs show complete similarity. (So I've copied and pasted my review to both listings). This is for the UK release copy.

A very bright, eye-catching book that is am alternative way to teach younger children the alphabet. This book focuses on facts about animals - some of which even I didn't know at my age.

With bright and original illustrations, Animal ABC is a colourful, imaginative, and fun way to teach young children about their ABCs with some fun animal facts along the way. I have a one-year-old and a four-year-old, and this is a great book for them to sit and read together. My youngest would love the bright colours, while my eldest would love the funny illustrations and interesting facts. Ilic is definitely one of the most talented illustrators around at the minute and I could look at his drawings all day. With a “Colours” and “123” edition coming out in the series as well, this is definitely a collection that all parents need to have on their shelves!

This was an amazingly hilarious book and it was so easy and fun to read! I really love the illustrations and it was so interesting to read. I learned quite a bit about animals for each letter of the alphabet.

A very bright, cute ABC book for the earliest readers. The illustrations are attention-grabbing and quite amusing, which makes this stand out among the variety of similar books. The little animal facts are interesting and funny. This would be a great shower or baby gift and a good purchase for a pre-K library to help the very youngest kids get used to handling and flipping through books. Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

*Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this opportunity to read and review this ARC!* "T: A TOUCAN uses its long bill to reach fruit that grows on trees." Simple and cute, these animals have a short one-sentence fact about each of them. Some of the animals are not the 'basic' list of animals you would expect - I would assume T would be Tiger, Tasmanian Devil, Turkey, or Toad, and that makes it even more fun!

Thank you to the author, Quarto Publishing Group and NetGalley, for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Another great, colorful and fun book by this talented artist - the sheer variety of animals made this great to read with young children. I especially liked that many of the animals were not particularly cuddly, but still nothing to strike fear into young hearts. Highly recommend!

How much can a bear sleep in winter? Which is the longest lizard there is? Which animals are older than dinosaurs? There are so many animals that inhabit our planet, that knowing them all is almost impossible. With Animal ABC children can learn the alphabet while discovering a wide variety of animals and some of their peculiarities. This is a simple but visually appealing children’s book. With striking colors and animals very well characterized through some very funny drawings. I think that for children this can be a fun way to learn as Animal ABC catches their attention and arouses curiosity through the small details that it gives them of each animal on each page. A beautiful, didactic and entertaining children’s book.

Animal ABC is a vibrant book introducing young children to the alphabet. Each page features a brightly colored animal and a unique description for each letter, like for E: "ELEPHANTS love bananas and can even peel their own!" The illustrations are caricatures of animals and sometimes they were a little weird, but overall pretty fun. Toddlers will love this fun book! Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for providing this ARC.
