From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 -- A magical presentation of the numbers from one to ten and back again. A clever little girl takes a magician's hat, cape, and wand from its special blue box and on each double-page spread tries her best to convince her little brother of the joys of each successive new number. She dreams up a fantastic rhyme for each number, featuring an array of animals and items from her bedroom engaging in nonsensical activities--"Seven kites and seven cakes,/And seven swans on sky-blue lakes." His response to each newly offered number is always the same: " NO, I WANT ONE!" At long last, back in her big sister persona, she gives in and gives him ONE puppy from her magic blue box. Each image that the little charmer conjures up comes to life in Narahashi's sparkling watercolors. As in Who Said Red? (McElderry, 1988), the artist's talent for showing humorous detail, shadow, and perspective enhances and expands Serfozo's spare texts, turning simple concept books into pure enchantment. --Luann Toth, "School Library Journal"

From Publishers Weekly:

Like Serfozo and Narahashi's Who Said Red? , this jaunty and original counting book is a standout. A girl playing magician waves a wand over her magic box. "Who wants one?" she asks, and though she bedazzles her brother with everything from two shiny shoes to seven swans on sky-blue lakes, he stoutly maintains that he wants only one. "You don't want nine, / when nine's so fine?" she asks. "Nine bluebirds sitting on a sign, / Nine green umbrellas, in a line. / Do you want nine?" But the curly-haired brother wants only one, and at the end of the book he gets it, when his sister hands him one wriggling puppy. Narahashi deftly transforms Serfozo's lilting rhymes into a bouquet of color, whether 10 brown hens lay speckled eggs on the back of 10 pink bucolic pigs or when two dapper kangaroos in vaudeville hats dance in sunny spotlights. Ages 3-6.
