More Than Two by Gary Young


More Than Two by Gary Young

We've all heard of a school of fish and a pod of whales-but have you heard of a battery of barracudas, a myth of mermaids or a tangle of octopi? This is a counting book about names, the special names that are given to things when there are MORE THAN TWO of them. These names are called collectives , but really it just means a lot of the same thing gathered together like a family. How many new names can you create? Gary Young is an award winning director and writer, whose love of theatre has lead him to create this charming collection.
