NEW from beloved illustrator/author, Judith Caseley, Z is for Zebra is a delightful reading romp for the very young child.

With vibrant art and quirky rhymes, this sure-to-be-a favorite book uses a child's innate love of animals to move the reader through the letters of the alphabet. Displaying gorgeous mosaics, rich with colors and details, the book presents the alphabet in an easily accessible and entertaining presentation. Perfect for teaching the child in your life about language and the animals we share the planet with. A delight for the mind and a visual feast for young book lovers and their parents, each page features an alphabet letter and a highly colorful animal mosaic along with quirky, funny memorable phrases.

Using glass tile, pebbles, and found materials instead of her usual paints and brushes, Caseley's words and pictures celebrate the imagination of every child, weaving her magic for the youngest would-be zoologist. It appeals to a young child's shorter attention span and innate love for animals and color. From jeweled starfish to bright butterflies, comic giraffes to venomous vipers this book is sure to be one your child will cherish.

  2. I LOVE this book! I enjoyed reading it as much as my niece did....and to think that each of these pictures is an actual mosaic work of art is incredible. I wonder how long it took her to do those??

    1. This is my third time trying to answer, so I must be blog stupid! It took over three years to do the mosaics, and I got progressively better. Mosaics are therapeutic to do...I highly recommend if you need to work through a problem! You are working in the moment.

    2. PS Thank you so much for liking the book! When I was a girl, only the good artists could draw horses. I could not. So that when I got to the letter Z, for zebra, which looks very much like a horse, I was afraid I couldn't do it. (That's why I only did the head!) But mosaics are very forgiving, with all the colors and shapes you can form! This was my favorite book to illustrate, out of forty!
