Stella Blackstone has written many bestselling titles for Barefoot Books, including the popular Bear and Cleo series, An Island in the Sun (9781-84148-197-4), Secret Seahorse (9781-84148-876-3) and Who Are You, Baby Kangaroo? (9781-84148-216-1). Stella lives with her family in Somerset. Stephanie Bauer was six years old when her parents gave her an "art box" and she has not stopped painting since. After earning a design degree from Colorado State University, she entered the architectural profession before launching her own faux-finish and decorative painting business. She now works as a full-time artist. Stephanie lives with her husband and three daughters in Oregon, where they share their house with three very bright birds, one blue fish and one plain brown dog. Stephanie has also illustrated Alligator Alphabet (9781-84148-493-8).From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K Various wild animals represent the numbers 1 to 12. A simple line of text accompanies each spread, which also includes two hidden cockatoos. At the end, Twelve toppling turtles are accompanied by lots of cockatoos! The chameleonlike birds almost disappear into foliage of their same color or peek from behind the pages' decorative borders. The final pages recap the numbers and animals depicted and show some cockatoo feathers for additional counting. As concept books go, the text is standard fare. It is Bauer's acrylics in bold colors and patterned, textured brushstrokes that give this book its appeal. However, with so many great counting books available, such as Denise Fleming's Count! (Holt, 1992), this one is strictly additional. Rachel G. Payne, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
