Pokey the orange pony, buddy of Gumby, is pretty good at counting. He just paws the ground with his hoof. But he'd like to help teach kids how to count, too. "And now the counting / fun has begun! / Count the two penguins in the snow / And three sled dogs, ready to go." Pokey and his friends, stars of Art Clokey's original clay animation TV series, are back, in an unusual and appealing format. Written by Clokey's stepdaughter, Holly Harman, the square board book is covered in soft foam, featuring Pokey on the cover. But guess what--Pokey pops out! A handy finger hole allows small hands to pull the pony right off the page so he can take the reader through the book, bending, counting, and rhyming all the way. Learn the numbers 1 through 10, as Pokey, Gumby, Prickle the dinosaur, and the rest blow out birthday candles, ride in a car, and play guitar. Parents will love introducing their young'uns to their childhood favorite, Pokey, as well as to Gumby in his own foam book, Gumby's Colors. (Preschool) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
