One to Ten

In the same style as Animal Babies A to Z, Chuck Murphy’s One to Ten presents vivid, intricate pop ups hidden behind bold black and white numerals. Publisher’s Weekly: “Two toucans ‘beak’ out from behind (where else?) the ‘2,’ while the ‘9’ reveals prettily posed parrots. Not all the numerals are pop-ups: pulling the tab at ‘3’ rotates a flat trio of beetles; in like fashion, a kaleidoscopic tropical fish septet swims out from the ‘7.’ And the last numeral only looks like a zero: pulling its tab uncovers a gaggle of capering kids and the missing ‘1.’ So the final page is indeed a ’10’-as is, in fact, the whole book.” Giggle factor: depends on the child, but when James was an infant, certainly this book sent him into ecstasies of delight. Adult enjoyment: likely. Illustrations: five jelly jars (even after three years!).
