Ten Little Beastiesby Rebecca Emberley
Synopses & Reviews
If there's one thing beasties love to do, it's dance! When one little beastie is joined by two little, three little, and more little beasties, we count UP until there's a party on the page. But when one of the little beastie starts trouble, it's time to start counting DOWN.
"It's survival of the fittest in this wild counting book. This father-and-daughter team offers a cast of spiky, angular, black-and-white monsters that cavort to a riff on the 'Ten Little Indians' nursery rhyme. 'One little/ two little/ three little beasties,/ four little/ five little/ six little beasties,' it reads as the corresponding number of creatures appear on each page. At the end, a reptilian beastie begins devouring the others, until only one is left — but not the one readers might expect. A downloadable performance of the song by Rebecca Emberley's daughter, Adrian, is available online. Ages 2 — 6. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
