About this title


Readers are encouraged to make up their own stories and to find objects from one to ten in a series of detailed, fanciful illustrations.

From Publishers Weekly:

Despite its subtitle, Kneen's (Santa Bear's First Christmas) dainty new book doesn't offer actual stories, but rather contains pictures accompanied by a single sentence meant to inspire children to create their own tales. Some of the spreads contain enticing words and creatively cluttered scenarios that are rich with possibility, among them a toy store after closing time ("As soon as it was dark, the mischief began again") and a child's bedroom in which toy planes hanging from the ceiling break free from their strings ("The planes knew exactly what to do next"). Other pictures are less successful as imagination igniters: a kitten stands on its hind legs against an aquarium and six marionettes perform on a puppet stage. As a counting book, this will challenge only those on the lowest end of the targeted audience; in a panel at the side of each spread appear a numeral and miniature objects (two snails, five toy cars, nine seashells) that kids can easily spot in the illustration alongside. The illustrations themselves, accomplished affairs stuffed with details, evoke quasi-fairy-tale settings?Bavarian cottages, a cabbage patch fit for Peter Rabbit, even a teddy bears' picnic. Ages 2-6.
