About the book: 

Once again author and illustrator Jacqui Taylor has drawn inspiration from the animals, plants and images of Africa for this delightful book of verse. 

Children will love the bright colours, textures and detail in her illustrations, which are factual rather than fantastical and therefore educational, yet in a fun style. The verses themselves are rhythmical and make use of indigenous words in the context of the imagery. 

Also included is a section of fascinating facts that teach and 'add value' to the verses themselves.

About the Author
Jacqui Taylor wanted to become an artist from a very early age. She worked for a number of years as an illustrator for advertising agencies in London and in Zimbabwe. While living in Hong Kong, she created A Hong Kong ABC Book for her son Christopher and this eventually led to the popular An African ABC,  also published by Struik Publishers. All Jacqui’s verses are ‘tried and tested’ on her own children. She currently runs her own design company, Fraser Design, in Harare, Zimbabwe.
