ABC Animals! (Scanimation Picture Books) (Hardcover)
Rufus Seder has taken the most vibrant colors, and associated them with animals and movement. The “moire” effect, as it’s called, allows movement of the animals without technical aid. The Alligator, for instance - his jaw opens and closes (amazingly) and he trots along. The letters are upper and lower cases, in colors that are SO bright, children just WANT to look at them. The animals (a few that are a little obscure), walk, trot, hop, fly - whatever it is that they do. So much fun for ABCers or their younger counterparts.

The timeless appeal of alphabet books meets the richest Scanimation book ever. ABC Animals is a romping, stomping journey from A to Z, and all the animals come alive--as many as four to a page--in the excitement of Scanimation. It's the alphabet as it's never been seen before: Watch the Alligator snap, the Bats swooping, the Camel trot. There's L for the Lion proudly prowling along, and M for the Mouse scurrying inside his wheel. And it all culminates in the largest Scanimation image yet: Z, for Zoo, where all the animals gather to play.
