Savoy Bookshop & Café presents its Saturday Story Hour featuring guest storyteller and author David Cundy, who will be reading his book Animals Spell Love and leading an art project.
About the Book
The expression of love has occurred throughout the ages in innumerable fashions. Sonnets, soliloquies, songs; 'countless ways' is the true answer to Elizabeth Barrett Browning's How do I love thee? Often, the simplest method is best, using the word itself: Love. In Animals Spell Love, gorgeously written and designed by David Cundy, sixteen critters from the farthest reaches of the animal kingdom help readers of all ages learn how to express the word love in sixteen languages from around the globe. From Czech to Amharic to Korean, and even including American Sign Language, children and adults will be delighted by the way Cundy shapes the letters into animals, and his brief primers, complete with pronunciation guide for every incarnation will help readers indulge in the languages of love.
