A counting book that introduces endangered animals, from one whale to ten turtles, includes information about how these species are being threatened with extinction
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Newcomer Wallwork uses her environmental concerns to give this counting book some heft. Endangered animals, including blue whales, penguins and parrots, populate the right page of each spread, while the left pages present the numbers one to 10 and simple identifications (e.g., "9 / nine dolphins"). Bold colors and borders of geometric shapes energize Wallwork's snappy torn-paper collages. The penultimate spread dramatically points out that there are no dodos left on earth; two final pages provide more detailed information about the precarious future of the featured animals and their habitats. The airy, uncluttered design of this volume suits the concept at hand. Ages 4-8.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.
This British artist's first book has two distinctions: striking torn-paper collages, handsomely set on royal blue or black and bordered in harmonious geometric designs, representing ``1/one whale,'' ``2/two tigers,'' and so on; and an inspired inclusion that relates to both her theme and an important number concept usually omitted from counting books: after ``10,'' a spread reading simply ``0...but no dodos''--and no picture, either. The dodo does appear on a final spread where the images of the animals are repeated with a brief text on the different reasons for their endangered status. Good idea, nicely developed; attractive book. (Picture book. 3-6) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
