The Utter Zoo: An Alphabet Book

The Utter Zoo: An Alphabet Book

Item # 28996


Twenty-six curious creaturesÑfrom the fastidious Ampoo to the world's one and only ZoteÑfill the pages of The Utter Zoo, an alphabet from the untamed imagination of Edward Gorey. The Boggerslosh, the Crunk, and the Dawbis; the Ippagoggy, the Jelbislup, and the Kwongdzu; the Scrug, the Twibbit, and the UlpÑeach strange and wonderful zoomate displays its own primary characteristic, described in GoreyÕs inimitable, droll, rhyming couplets.

A writer and artist with an instantly recognizable style, Gorey (American, 1925Ð2000) created over one hundred works and was also a playwright, an award-winning set and costume designer, and the creator of the animated introduction to the PBS series Mystery! First published in 1967, The Utter Zoo is a favorite of Gorey fans, young and old alikeÑno matter how well they know their ABCs.
56 pages with 26 black-and-white drawings. Size: 6 1/2 x 6". Hardcover
