Bert Kitchen has created an ingenious counting book. Turn the pages, see the mother animals and count the babies. You will find that the number of babies matches the numeral shown. Count one baby kangaroo in the mother's pouch, two cygnets in procession behind their mother, and go on counting a hundred baby frogs in their different stages of development. Bert Kitchen has painted this pictures to illustrate how different mother animals behave with their young, making this a most original counting book. All of the animals, familiar and exotic, are identified at the back of the book together with some fascinating facts about their behaviour. "Animal Numbers" has proved a great critical success, not only winning the First Graphics Prize at the Bologna Book Fair but also being runner-up for the Critici in Erba Prize.
