Synopses & Reviews
A sensationally attractive package (chunky and substantial, with a bright red slipcase and cover) sets the stage for an inventive exploration of counting—from one to ten and back again, simultaneously. As the reader turns the pages, one becomes two and then three, as ten becomes nine and then eight. The numbers unfold and transform with breathtaking ingenuity. 10 is a beautiful book that belongs in all design and gift departments.
"Housed within a shiny red slipcase, this minimalist counting book can be viewed in multiple ways. By turning the pages once from left to right, readers can count from '01' to '10,' the black numerals appearing on the left side of each white spread. By proceeding through the book and unfolding each page twice, however, the numbers transform the top of the '2' swivels, losing its base to become a '9,' for example so readers can count down to '01.' While less complex and inventive than ABC3D, the sleek construction should appeal to pop-up fans of any age. All ages. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
