This is a gorgeous counting book. A girl called Sue and a boy called Nick count their way up and down through this book. It seems simple: two woolly gloves, two shiny shoes, three round buttons, four bright bows... But look again, and there are three T-shirt hearts with the four bows, and six flowers with five pigs, and no end of things to notice. There are stripes and spots and stars, plain things and patterned things. Nick has nine chocolate biscuits to eat, all the same. Sue has ten iced fancies to choose from. (Oh, and while she ponders, her arm is covering one of the T-shirt hearts. Nice.) Counting down again is challenging, because we have six butterflies all jumbled up with five bumble bees. And you can count a hundred stars at the end, if you're really into counting.
