ABC Off To Sea

This maritime ABC breathes a real blast of fresh air into the genre. From A for Anchor and B for Buoy, from C for Cruise Ship to D for Dolphins and Zzzz for bedtime, Virginie Morgand’s gloriously illustrated book is a wonderful introduction to all things nautical for young children. Her drawings successfully combine a sixties feel with the intensity of animated cinema, bringing the pictures to life page after page.

Virginie Morgand has developed her own highly distinctive visual language as an artist and illustrator working with screenprints and linocuts. She has worked on illustration projects with the London Transport Museum, Barneys in New York, 'Elle' and 'The Sunday Times'. She is also the author of What Do Grown-ups Do All Day?
