The Eyeball Alphabet Book

By: Jerry Pallotta / Illustrated by: Shennen Bersani

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Best-selling author Jerry Pallotta takes a peek at eyes from across the animal kingdom in this hilarious and fact-packed alphabet book.

Kirkus Reviews

Did you know that horses have oval-shaped pupils and lobsters can only see light and dark? Or that earthworms, widemouth blindcats, and yeti crabs have no eyes at all, and ostriches have the largest eyes of any land mammal? This book presents alphabetical eyeball facts as well as a breakdown of idioms, from “the eye of the beholder” to “in the blink of an eye.” This is the latest in a successful series of alphabet books and another nonfiction collaboration by Pallotta and Bersani. The choice to highlight lesser known, unique animals like an indri, quoll, tarsier, uakari, xenosaur, and zebu is fresh and inspiring, and Bersani’s almost photorealistic artwork uses stunning close-ups and intriguing angles. While perhaps not every child will be itching to learn about the difference between binocular and monocular vision or a camel’s nictitating membrane, the wild popularity of the Who Would Win? series will certainly drive an audience for this book. Find Steve Jenkins’ Eye to Eye (2014) and Shelley Rotner’s Whose Eye Am I? (2016) for an eye-catching display.
