Animalia

Within the pages of this book

You may discover, if you look

Beyond the spell of written words,

A hidden land of beasts and birds.

For many things are 'of a kind,'

And those with keenest eyes will find

A thousand things, or maybe more -

It's up to you to keep the score ...

I give this book a big four stars but I give the app five stars. The additional interactivity makes locating Graeme and finding the many items in the lovely illustrations so much more fun - especially for a younger reader who might find the complex illustrations a little daunting at first.

A discovery of magic!!
