On the front of BfK this month is the cover of Yesterday by Adèle Geras. The artwork is by Carolyn Piggford. This book is one from the 'Teenage Memoirs' series published by Walker (see the article, All Their Yesterdays, in this issue) and Adèle, of course, is the subject of our Authorgraph - see centre-spread. Our thanks to Walker Books for their help in using this illustration.
The Little Owl range offers lively books and learning tapes for the 3-7 age group. Counting is a jolly book with a brightly coloured circus theme where a new character joins the picture for each number up to 10. The rhyming text is simple: 'Next comes an acrobat/How many more?/ Watch him somersault /That makes four.' One side of the tape goes through the book with catchy songs to a simple and infectious beat and a Little Owl turn-over-tone hoot. The other side has seven counting songs like 'Five Fat Sausages' attractively sung for joining in.
