Can you spell a Kangaroo? Yes! At alphabet-city zoo! Join this creative visit to the zoo featuring images created in Letter Art by this award-winning illustrator.

These ingenious animal portraits link letters and image in a totally new way, creating a connection between word and image that will help improve letter recognition, spelling and design skills.

The storyline is simple and empowering, in the form of a question and answer format. Readers spell their way through a series of animal pictures, made from the letters that spell the name of each animal. Colours are bold and bright, and the animals have a universal appeal.
