A lion riding a dog, monkeys boxing a kangaroo, a fox riding a fire engine… This is one ride children won’t want to miss!
As the book unfolds and the carousel starts to turn, readers see a troupe of characters march past in colourful array. How many animals are seen? What are they called? Each spin brings new life to the tale, inviting a different story to be told and a new world to unfold.
The Carousel of Animals will enchant both young and old with the paper craftsmanship that is a signature of Gérard Lo Monaco’s work. His striking illustrations captivate the imagination and delightful rhymes give pace to each spin of this madcap journey on the animal carousel.

About the Publisher
gestalten continues to actively reimagine how it approaches publishing and wishes to inform and inspire its community and, in turn, be inspired by it. Its origin story began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both its content and expertise has widened, with Little Gestalten joining the literary ranks in 2014 to ensure there was a place for readers of all ages within the world of gestalten.
