One White Rabbit: A Counting Book is a delightful introduction to numbers and counting uses characters and object from Lewis Carroll's iconic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass . From 'One White Rabbit for Alice to follow' to 'Five grins from the Cheshire Cat', and 'Nine tarts made by the Queen', this is a really charming book. The traditional illustrations are by Sir John Tenniel, supplemented by additional pictures in Tenniel's style and beautiful Victorian-style decorative motifs. This is a really special book for young children and together with A is for Alice: An Alphabet Book , forms a classy introduction to the classic Macmillan Alice.

I read this to Kitty, age 2.

She loves the pictures and will often tell me she wants this book by naming some of the characters. She loves to point and tell me what the pictures are. I love the style of the illustrations and will definitely be buying the other book in the series 'A is for Alice'

Oh I just love this book. It makes me want to read the Alice in Wonderland story all over again. It is clearly laid out, the numbers themselves are large and clear and there is enough space around the objects for little hands to point as they count. The illustrations are timeless classics but the flamingo page is my favourite - oh and Tommy and LJ like it too! A book that has the potential to be one that is loved and treasured.

We really enjoyed this Alice in wonderland themed counting book.  Each page features a number and related Alice in wonderland characters to count along with.  We particular enjoyed counting the cheshire cats as we have our own cats at home.  This book had lovely illustrations and was a well made boardbook which is great for little fingers!

I love this book so much, and so does my daughter Alice. Its such a lovely book. The book is very sturdy - which is good as Alice tries to grab it whilst we're reading it    The illustrations are beautiful and I love all the references to Alice in Wonderland. Such a fun way of learning how to count. We've got the alphabet version too and I would recommend both. I can see us reading these books for years to come!!

This is a lovely little board book which is about counting with an Alice In Wonderland theme. Perfect for my daughter who has just turned 2 and is learning to count but has also recently got into Disney so loves Alice.

Emily's absolute favourite part of this book was the Cheshire Cat - I think Cat is her new favourite word as she has been saying it all week!

We had great fun going through the numbers together and the book itself was sturdy enough to withstand the tugging and throwing of an excited one year old so I expect it will last a good while.

The pictures within the book had vibrant colours which made Emily want to keep looking at them and the numbering was great.

I think I especially liked it as the characters reminded me of my own childhood and allowed both parent and child to enjoy the book rather than another TV Cartoon theme so it will also make a lovely keepsake or decoration for a nursery if you wanted a traditional theme.

I read this book with my young daughter.  It's well made, and stands up well to her attempts to turn the pages herself and eat the pictures.  I'm a big fan of Lewis Carroll, and so I really appreciated the victorian illustrations in this book.  I was worried that the style would not be engaging for young readers, but the pictures sit well with very colourful backgrounds and my daughter certainly enjoyed looking at them too.  

The book is pretty, but I don't know if this will become one of our favourite counting stories.   I found it a bit strange that the numbers sat alongside references to the story (for example, seven roses that need to be painted) but there was no connection between the pages. Without the context of the rest of the Alice story, I could see older children losing interest or finding the vocabulary too obscure if they couldn't understand why, for example, there were eight flamingoes for a game of croquet. But for now, as a very first introduction to numbers, it is going down well in our house.
