A rhythmic text and fun-filled illustrations help create a clever counting book, as nine animals strut their stuff before joining an ever-growing and ever more precarious tower of animal acrobats.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1?A rather slight counting book. The illustrations and the rhyme are cumulative; animals enter the picture, one by one, carrying their numbers. As they walk on, they join the previous animals?the bear climbs on top of a mouse, the dog and cat on top of the mouse, the toucan on top of the hind leg of the dog, ever more precariously, until the weight of creature number 10?a ladybug?causes the whole pile to collapse. The full-color illustrations are oddly lacking in background?the figures all stand on a stark white page. Though each animal seems to come with some kind of accoutrement?the lion with a gold crown, the pig with a bassoon, the toucan with a lollipop, the bear with a tutu and toe shoes?there is just not enough here to generate excitement or hold youngsters' interest. Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein have taken the same concept of accumulating chaos to the point of collapse to much more entertaining ends.?Ruth K. MacDonald, Bay Path College, Longmeadow, MA

From Booklist:

Ages 1^-4. A tiny mouse is the foundation of a perilous pile of animals in this counting book for the very young. Simple rhyming sentences in large type introduce both a number and an animal: "One is a mouse that carried a rose. Two is a bear that twirled on its toes." Appealing watercolor illustrations depict each animal as it takes its place on a pile that's ready-made for counting. Each number is spelled out in giant colored letters and also appears in number form (in the same bright color) in the upper right-hand corner of the page. With rhyme, color, and animals to engage them, preschoolers are sure to love and learn from this charming counting story. Lauren Peterson
