Book Review: A Tower of Giraffes by Anna Wright

  The art in this book is simply wonderful. 

I like the patterns (though they get repetitive in spots). And I like the textures. 

But I loved the painting. Especially with animals like the pigs – where the messiness conveyed dirt. And the monkeys – where the messiness conveyed chaos. 

I never thought I’d say, “such an effective use of browns…” But, there you go. 

And the naming of the groups of animals is a fantastic topic for little ears. We all know the basic – a herd of cows, a school of fish. But have you heard of an ostentation of peacocks? 

Great little learning book for young readers. 

Thanks to NetGalley and Charlesbridge for a copy in return for an honest review.
