About the Author:

Jane Brocket is the author of The Gentle Art of Domesticity (2007) and The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking (2010) and of two books based on the wonderful things characters eat and do in classic children s books: Cherry Cake and Ginger Beer (2008) and Ripping Things to Do (2009) a selection of the pieces in these two books has been collected into one volume for the US as Turkish Delight and Treasure Hunts (Perigee, 2010). She is currently writing a series of four Clever Concepts books for Millbrook Press. She has a knitting book to be published in 2011 and two more craft books in the pipeline.

Jane enjoys knitting, quilting, sewing, baking, growing flowers, and taking photographs of the things she makes as well as details of the world around her. She loves color, pattern, texture, shapes, and objects. And, above all, she love books and reading.

From Booklist:

The latest of Brocket’s Clever Concepts series offers considerably more than counting practice. With big, bright close-up photos of arranged fruits, flowers, numbers, buttons, cookies, and other items both common and unique, the book not only leads viewers from 1 to 20, with occasional pauses to tally (How many socks in a box? That’s right, seven) but also demonstrates addition and subtraction (Twenty eggs on a table. If we take them all away, how many are left?); tucks in work with sets (Let’s count the buttons in each row); the notion of fractions (Fifteen is halfway between ten and twenty); and other math concepts. Meanwhile, her pictures go well beyond standard fare: a bold visual choice is a pair of metallic spray-painted owls from a street mural for the number two. She frequently challenges young viewers to make mental leaps. Can you count how many eggs are in the bowl?, for instance, is matched to a bowl full of floating yolks. Each spread offers multiple opportunities for discussion as well as eye and brain work. Clever, indeed. Preschool-Grade 2. --John Peters
