123: A Child's First
Counting Book


by Alison Jay

A little girl dreams that she travels to a magical land full of popular fairy tale characters like three little pigs, four frog princes, six gingerbread men... Each spread is devoted to a number from 1-10 and back again. Jay's charming illustrations --with her trademark crackle glaze finish -- are the star of the show, as the text is minimal and largely there to support the illustrations.

In a starred review, Publisher's Weekly said, "The pictures are a wonder to behold...like missives from a universe where it's Once Upon a Time 24/7." Well said!  And, Jay includes more counting opportunities in the backgrounds of each spread. Fun!
