Award-winning author Judi Barrett and illustrator Daniel Moreton... invite young readers to think of numbers, counting, and rhyming in a whole new way. A Few Words From the Author: Ive always wanted to create a different kind of counting book. I love playing with words, rhyming them, making jokes with them, and playing with their sounds.

Writing this book made me laugh. I hope it makes you laugh too!
