‘This looks sensational. A playful counting book decorated by some truly beautiful creatures.'

Fiona Noble - The Bookseller


"Playful words, unexpected pairings and beautiful animal paintings combine to bring us a very special counting book. The watercolour illustrations, each of which is a little work of art, are embellished with gold and silver leaf, and show us some lovely animals, including foxes, elephants, tigers, swans, mice and more. A beautiful book which takes counting books to a new dimension; one to pick up and pore over with delight."
