"This zany number book collaboration between Yeoman and Blake is tremendously successful. Verse and illustration complement each other with delicious absurdity."

"Learning to count doesn't get more delightful than this. A witty, perfectly shaped building story with glorious illustrations."

"A firm favourite... Problem solving for the pre-schooler and reception set, at it's best."

"Wonderful flowing text, combined with lively and colourful pictures make this another sure-fire success from this inspired pairing."
