About the Author:

Jerry Pallotta is an award-winning author of children's alphabet books and imaginative fiction. His books combine interesting facts, detailed research, humor, and realistic illustrations that mesmerize children everywhere.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. Eschewing the counting-book convention of presenting consecutive numbers, this exuberant offering counts by twos to 50 and includes only odd numbers (except for the deliberate inclusion of 50 and 0). Pallotta, creator of The Ocean Alphabet (1986), returns to the sea for his inspiration, so readers will find creatures from 9 little green crabs to 15 limpets to 33 sand dollars. Each entry includes an informal, nontechnical, endearingly disjointed paragraph about the marine animal pictured: "Count these twenty-nine blue mussels. Not many mollusks have a blue shell. If you ever look for blue sea glass, mussels can confuse you." The facts are as likely to be about the harvesting of the animals as about their biology, and occasional outbursts such as "Yay! Thirty-three!" add to the overall sense of giddiness. Bersani's mostly realistic colored-pencil illustrations are pleasing in both palette and composition. Future bean counters will revel in counting ("49 smelly smelts") in this innovative introduction to odd numbers and contagiously silly underwater adventure. Karin Snelson
