Christiane Engel – An Alphabet Pet Parade

Congrats to Christiane Engel for this rave review from Kirkus for her latest book ‘An Alphabet Pet Parade’.

“Engel’s exquisite illustrations offer a bright display of color and activity. The town’s quirky residents range in age, ethnicity, skin tone, and ability—two characters use wheelchairs—as well as described personality. Endnotes offer discussion questions, including about the wisdom of keeping exotic pets. A charming, challenging, imaginative alphabet book; will induce giggles.” Kirkus Reviews
