Review:

"Rayner is a past winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and this book is a perfect example of her quite stunning artwork and the inventive ways in which she plays with size, shape, perspective and even page design. Full of expression and detail, this is a beautiful, gentle book, perfect for bedtime reading." * Daily Mail * "Abigail is a gentle tale about counting, friendship and teamwork with a gorgeous backdrop and yet another sublime offering from Catherine Rayner." * Library Mice * "This is a beautiful, heart-warming book, full of inventive illustrations and with a stunning fold-out page in which the enchanting Abigail reaches for the sky. Abigail's colourful counting game is ideal as a first numbers lesson for toddlers, and the perfect wind-down bedtime story book." * The Chorley Guardian * "This book is a true work of art, with some of the loveliest animal illustrations you'll see in children's books." * Read it Daddy * "Beautiful imagery aside, there's plenty of counting here to stimulate young minds, and a surprising pull-out page at the end will delight your child's sense of adventure." * Junior Book Club * "The maths of this book work out very well: Seemingly effortlessly beautiful, fluid illustrations (full of splotches and savannah like colours) + A tale of friendship woven lightly together with a string of numbers + The fun of a fold-out flap + A lavishly produced physical with its stunning dark blue and gold cover = A dreamy 5* picture" * Playing By the Book * "This is a gorgeous bedtime book that will calm even the most chaotic of toddlers." * Made For Mums * "Abigail is a perfect bedtime read with a stunning fold-out night sky ending." * Scottish Book Trust * "Gentle water colours are charming and make one want to read the pictures as well as the words, it is tempting to reach into the pages and stroke Abigail, she is so approachable and this is the key to the story." * Armadillo Magazine * "Stunning imagery of the African plains and its inhabitants pack the book, with a lovely gentle story suitable for all ages but especially for 3-5 year olds because of the focus on learning to count. A flip-up page adds to the interest, and ending with night-time makes this the perfect bedtime read." * Child-Led Chaos * "With sumptuous full-page illustrations and the treat of a fold-out page this is a warm and gentle story of friendship and shared delight at the natural world. A memorable feast for the eyes." * Carousel * "[Abigail] encourages counting in a playful way... Super for reinforcement and consolidation of reading and recognising numbers, or simply to encourage more of an interest in numbers and counting." * Early Years Educator * "This is a well-structured 1-10 counting book with numbers set out in simple patterns." * Good Books Guide *
