Staff Reviews

This colorful and inventive flap book with a simple (and durable!) single pull on each page introduces numbers with a surprising twist. Each spread shows 1 of something, but pull the right-hand edge and the page opens up to reveal that what was originally two halves of one thing (one strawberry, one donut, one carrot) turns out to be two parts parts of several other things. One chocolate ice cream pop opens up to reveal 9 tortoise, one lemon becomes ten yellow chickies. Great fun, and easy for even little hands to operate. — Jennifer Armstrong


Part counting game, part guessing game, this delightful board book invites little ones to look at one thing, and guess what else it could be. Each page shows one shape, and then unfolds to reveal an ingenious surprise, sure to captivate curious toddlers.

Praise For…

"A page-turner for the toddler set." —Kirkus Reviews

"Plays with perceptions, assumptions, and predictions. Awfully pertinent stuff in 2016, wouldn’t you say? You can never teach it too early." —Elizabeth Bird, blogs.slj.com

"A 2016 Cybils Award Finalist . . . . The pages are easily manipulated by little hands, and while younger readers will enjoy marveling at the transformation, older children can be led in games of, 'What else could this shape be?'” —Ami Jones, amomssparetime.blogspot.com

"A unique counting book that invites readers to take a closer look at simple objects . . . . an ideal option for storytimes featuring guessing or predicting games.” —Brooke Newberry, slj.com

"Very clever and just the thing for kids who want something to grab their interest and their little fingers . . . . A fun and interesting concept. If you have an audience who's careful with their board books or the budget to replace frequently, definitely add this one.” —jeanlittlelibrary.blogspot.com

"Craftily engineered . . . .The chatty narrative and the sheer imaginative fun of the transformations create a charming guessing game." —Publishers Weekly
