9781568462226: A Number of Animals

Striking visuals and a simple but compelling story line make A Number of Animals a counting book that is as delightful as it is effective. Illustrator Christopher Wormell is at his best with bold block prints that manage to convey the movement and emotions of an assortment of farm animals. Kate Green's light and inviting text, meanwhile, shepherds readers along on one little bird's barnyard journey in this reissued classic.

About the Author:

Kate Green is an author who has written novels, children's books, and collections of poetry. She is a longtime professor of English and creative writing in the Minneapolis–St. Paul area.

Christopher Wormell is a self-taught artist renowned for his engravings. His first children's book, An Alphabet of Animals, won the Graphics Prize at the 1990 Bologna Children's Book Fair.

Review:

"Brilliant, glossy, heavily outlined illustrations of a steadily increasing number of barnyard animals follow the peregrinations of a lost chick as he searches-successfully-for his mother and sisters. With its bold, museum-quality graphic-art illustrations and extra-large trim size, Christopher Wormell's A Number of Animals made quite a splash when it was first published in 1993. This new edition reduces it in size to a more modest nine-by-nine-inch square, but its impact is unaffected." - The Horn Book Guide

Elegant woodcuts lift this simple counting book far above the ordinary. A minimalist tale follows the travels of "one little chick, lost and alone" around the farmyard on a search for his mother...Wormell ( An Alphabet of Animals ) uses bursts of color and bold black shadows to give his artwork depth and perspective. As a further enhancement, the book's beautiful design and classic proportions are set off by generous amounts of white space, creating a stylish frame for the illustrations. Who says fine art and preschool concepts can't go hand in hand? - Publisher's Weekly
