I received a signed copy of this book as an Autumn giveaway. It's a lovely book to handle, has a bright and colourful layout and gives an original and engaging slant on learning to count. The story is amusing and so typical of a child's blossoming awareness of the meaning of number and counting. The interplay between brother and little sister is so real. I loved it! I haven't read it to any children yet, but as a retired teacher, I'm sure this book will be immensely popular with any child, at least up to Year 4. It would make an ideal Christmas present.

i have just received my signed copy of "One Thing". It is quite charming, but can't really add to that. I am keeping it as the perfect Christmas present for my 3-year old granddaughter. Watch this space.

I've just received my copy of this book and it's lovely. The pictures are bright and colourful and the story is endearing
