Once in a while a children’s book comes along that is as much of a joy to read for them as it is for yourself. Anna Wright’s hardback ‘A Tower of Giraffes, Animal Bunches’ is just that. I have long been a fan of her artwork which combines pen, ink and watercolour with fabric collage to make totally unique, yet very recognisable, humorous studies of animals. I have previously given my goddaughter a gorgeous print for her Christening gift as I find her artwork appeals to adults just as much as children.
Anna’s new book depicts the names given to animal groups and includes little paragraphs of facts which Little A loves. Who knew that in a gaggle of geese the ones at the back of the group honk to encourage those in the front to keep moving quickly! A Tower of Giraffes would make an ideal birthday gift or great to have a couple of copies in the pressie drawer.
