Through the Animals' Eyes by Christopher Wormell
Book DescriptionChristopher Wormell's compelling and colourful artwork has won him admirers amongst children and adults alike. His first book for children, "An Alphabet of Animals", started as a series of simple and colourful lino-cut illustrations for his son, and eventually grew into a book that took the prestigious Graphics Prize at the Bologna International Children's Book Fair in 1991. "The New Alphabet of Animals", published by Running Press in 2002, won critical acclaim for the sheer force of its artistry.

Eric is a little boy who sometimes gets things wrong. But Eric learns that while you can't be good at everything, sometimes it takes a little time to find out what you are good at. And when a huge monster stomps down the mountain to Eric's village, Eric just might have his chance to shine...
US Kirkus Review » Printed on creamy stock between heavy purple covers, this majestic rendition of the Christmas story makes a sumptuous gift item. Adding extra illustrations fore and aft, Wormell follows Mary and Joseph as they journey to Bethlehem past black storks, griffon vultures and a lion (all identified in a discursive key at the end), and settle in the stable. Meanwhile, shepherds and wise men, plus a Canaan dog, a gray wolf and other creatures, get the Good News, then flee with the Child to Egypt, "beyond King Herod's grasp," until it's time for Jesus to "fulfill his wondrous destiny." The animals, in dignified natural poses, generally occupy the foregrounds in Wormell's deeply shadowed color woodcuts, but even younger viewers should have no trouble following the human story-with or without the formal, all-caps text on each verso.
