The Surfing Animals Alphabet by Jonas Claesson & James Redmayne
Self-published by Jonas Claesson 2015. ISBN 978-194424283-1
"I recently saw something strange as can be, A procession of animals out in the sea!"
What could be better than slipping in some surf terminology whilst teaching children their A-Zs? Never too young to learn!
"Tube riding Tigers, Power Surfing Mandrills and Longboarding Wombats. An aquatic alphabet adventure for Old Sea Dogs and Young Pups alike!"
Being parents ourselves at The Golden Rays, we can't recommend books like The Surfing Animals Alphabet highly enough. Books that engage and amuse the parent as much as child add to the bond created by reading together. And when Claesson's expertly rendered creatures meet Redmayne's clever use of rhyming surf vernacular they'll bring a smile to even the most hardened surfer's face.

ABOUT JONAS CLAESSON
Jonas is originally from Stockholm, Sweden but in order to escape the darkness of winter and need for a 20mm wetsuit he moved to Australia. He took his native wildlife with him. From his new home down under he draws moose, reindeer, seals and bears all following the same adventurous surfing life as him. Always drawing by hand, he uses a bold and bright colour palette to create a really fun eye-catching style.
