Mike Boldt's bright and playful picture book asks a big question: Which is more important, numbers or letters?
Numbers and letters, the colorful characters in this story, compete to be the stars of this book. Their debate escalates when funny animals and props arrive—starting with 1 alligator, 2 bears, and 3 cars. Who is this book really about?
In the end, the answer is clear. This fresh and funny picture book plays with both numbers and letters in the most imaginative way.
Welcome to this book about Numbers!
Welcome to this book about Letters!
Wait. . . .
Numbers and Letters both want to be the stars of this book! And when one alligator (that starts with an A!) and two bears (2 of them!) and three cars (1, 2, 3! A, B, C!) begin to show up, the havoc that ensues is as joyous a romp as a counting book . . . that is, an ABC book . . . has ever been. With vivid illustrations from author-illustrator Mike Boldt, this fresh and funny picture book plays with numbers and letters in the most imaginative way.
