Synopses & Reviews
The numbers 1 to 20 have never been so creatively counted as in Basher: 123, a companion to the critically acclaimed Basher: ABC Kids. Witty, rhythmic text and Bashers bold, appealing artwork highlight the gallery of unforgettable characters like two cheeky monkeys playing tennis, three messy piggies baking cakes, and five cool caterpillars blowing bubbles who dance across the pages. But theres some learning that comes with all this fun—each double-page spread features a number line from 1 to 20, which combines with the language to give children essential tools to learn how to count quickly and with confidence.
"In this high-energy follow-up to ABC Kids, the numbers one through 20 appear numerically and written out in bold type on pastel backgrounds, opposite digitally rendered animals with chunky outlines, in Basher's distinctive manga-meets-video-game style. The creatures star in silly scenarios ('Four freaky frogs have holes in their socks'), and readers should eagerly engage with the lively and easy-to-count cartoons, alliteration, and repetition, including endpages that count from one to 20 again with smaller versions of the characters.
