Wild Alphabet: An A to Zoo Pop-Up Book (HB $20) is simply one of the best pop-up books going round. Pop-up technology (if we can call it that!) has come a long way recently, and while most of the pop-ups in this book are not the most complicated we’ve ever seen, they are some of the most effective. Almost all in black and white, every letter brings a new animal and peek-a-boo moment. With facts and actual photographs for every animal, this book is the perfect mix of cool and school – a brilliant gift!
(And if you happen to be wondering what animal on earth starts with X, your answer is Xantus, a small bird with a serious sweet tooth!)
