Wondrously strange digital and colored pencil scenes and short, descriptive phrases invite enjoyment in numeral hunting and counting: look, for instance, for the three musketeers who become six as their reflections appear in a lake. Quirky fun.

 MEETING NOTES FOR JUNE 20

POSITIVE COMMENTS

  • Quirky
  • Each spread you have to think about.
  • Looseness of the style lends itself to the mystery.
  • Almost like a puzzle to find everything.

OBSERVATIONS

  • Where would you shelve? Actually get multiple uses from a variety of age levels.

CONCERNS

  • 5 was especially confusing - the book seems to fall apart here.
  • Unattractive color palate.
