Beautiful drawings, fantastic story and a subtle interactive way to learn to count to ten! This is my favourite counting book for young children, even though it is not immediately obvious that this is what it is. Professor Dupont has ten cockatoos who one day escape.  He looks in each room of his house searching for the missing birds. In the first room one bird is hidden, in the second two, and so on.  Children have great fun sporting the birds as they hide, and soon learn how many will be in each room. Definitely a very fun book for small children.

Quentin Blake is very popular in our house at the minute and this book is probably the most popular of all.
It’s the tale of a man and his cockatoos who decide to go into hiding after growing sick of their owner’s routine.
It’s great fun to spot and count the cockatoos as the book progresses (always at extra cockatoo hiding in the next picture.
It’s a marvellous counting book and beautifully illustrated. A must-read for young children.

This is a book about a man and his mischievous, hiding cockatoos. It's a great story for encouraging counting in younger children. It also gives children a lot of new ideas for hiding places!!

A beautifully illustrated story about Professor Dupont who’s cockatoos decide to play a trick on him. My son found it very funny and loved spotting where the cockatoos were hiding on each page. This has become a favourite in our house.
