A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies and other such collective nouns
by Kate Hursthouse
Have you ever seen a smack of jellyfish, a dazzle of zebras or a glimmer of dragonflies?
Calligrapher and illustrator Kate Hursthouse has been getting her collective noun on, exploding the pages of her new book with the riches of our language and her imagination combined. This book is a visual feast, with vibrant illustrations taking readers on a journey to meet 25 of the planet’s most fabulous, colourful creatures complete with their wonderful, wacky group names.
The artwork inspires movement, dance and singing, practically begging little bodies to get moving.
Language and illustration combine playfully to introduce young readers to the bounty of nature; a loveliness of ladybugs anyone?
