Browndeer Press,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
Lexile measure:
In sensational (and highly unlikely) newspaper stories, readers can count giant banjos, carrot icicles, pickle balloons, and jelly faucets. Max Grover's paintings, with their intense color and unexpected juxtapositions, make counting more fun than a car with sixteen wheels on one side! "The paintings are wonderously bright, oscillating between campy humor and pure absurdity. A full-blast chuckle machine that doubles, very quietly, as a book about numbers."-Kirkus Reviews
