April 2012 Book of the Month. Best-selling Barry, a fish with a difference, is back for a new, pop-up adventure and this time he’s helping readers to count. Barry’s playing tickle chase with his friends under the sea. There’s one orange octopus, two purple starfish, three red crabs, four yellow angel fish and five pink seahorses. Helping Barry to catch and count them is a visual treat and great fun.

About the Author

Sue Hendra

Sue Hendra says:

"I graduated from the University of Brighton in 1994 and have been working as an illustrator of children's books since then. I've worked on over 70 titles now and I really enjoy it. I used to illustrate completely by hand but now I work on computer as well as painting. In addition to making books I run weekly art clubs for 8- 12 year olds at two of my local museums. I started this a couple of years ago and discovered that I really love working with children. I still live in Brighton and work in a shared studio with seven other artists."

Sue Hendra has made a name for herself creating picture books starring the most endearingly wacky array of characters.

Barry the Fish with Fingers made a big splash when first published in 2009, and has since sold over 100,000 copies. Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell was the bestselling new picture book for the first quarter of 2011, and Keith the Cat with the Magic Hat burst onto the scenes in summer 2012.

Sue Hendra’s Simon & Schuster titles have reached almost 300,000 copies in the UK alone.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
