What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A drove of pigs, a romp of otters, an ostentation of peacocks, and a tower of giraffes. . . . This clever book introduces young readers to some of the words we use to refer to animals in a group. The ink, watercolor, and fabric collage art is brightly colored and uniquely sets this fun book apart from the crowd. Each page presents information about an animal and its group behavior, such as how geese fly in a V-shape and honk to encourage the leaders, and that sometimes tens of thousand of flamingos meet up in one location.

Young readers will have a great time and create a wellspring of new vocabulary words.

Who Wrote A Tower of Giraffes

author & illustrator
Anna Wright

Anna is an artist and illustrator. Her upbringing, in Dumfriesshire, southwest Scotland, was surrounded by rural life, which alongside her love for colour, pattern and textiles, has shaped her work.

Since exploring these influences at Edinburgh College of Art, Anna has grown her trademark style of colour and humour using a mixture of fabric, feathers, pen, ink & paint. On any given day you’ll find her in her studio sketching away or delving into her chest of fabric that she has sourced from varied locations. Animals are her main focus and she uses bold inky lines to capture their humour and character adding fabric & feathers to bring colour & texture to her drawings. If the mood is right the images are signed off with a witty caption adding to the joy of the creation.

Over the years Anna has grown her drawings into a business and now makes a range of beautiful prints, cards, mugs, homeware & gifts. Wherever possible, all of her products are UK made with a focus on quality, sustainability and durability.

Anna now splits her time between her studio in Edinburgh (where it all started) and Kennington, London where she works out of a beautiful victorian craftsman’s mews.
