LoveReading View on Counting with Tiny Cat

Longlisted for the UKLA 2018 Book Award

Quirky and inventive as ever, Viviane Schwarz brings her playful genius to the counting book. Tiny Cat goes from having no woolly red balls (‘None’ says the text opposite Tiny Cat looking wonderfully wide-eyed and surprised in the centre of bright white space), to one, two, three, more, about a dozen, lots, before he throws them all up in the air to pounce and play with them.  It’s absolutely hilarious and Viviane Schwarz’s vibrant brush and ink illustrations give Tiny Cat a huge personality. A book to make you laugh each time you read it. ~ Andrea Reece


Counting with Tiny Cat Synopsis

Let's count with Tiny Cat - the completely adorable feline from Viviane Schwarz's Kate Greenaway shortlisted There Are Cats in This Book and There Are No Cats in this Book. From the endlessly innovative and playful Viviane Schwarz comes a very funny first counting book with a wonderfully feline twist in the tail! At first Tiny Cat has none. Then, what's that? One! Two! Three! And ...four! Oops, bonk, now there's more! Soon Tiny Cat has as many red balls of wool as you can get. Then some extra. Too many...?!

Will Tiny Cat ever have just enough? With very few words - and loads of visual humour - counting has never been so much fun!

Counting with Tiny Cat Press Reviews

A delightfully off-the-wall exploration of numbers with the help of a cat and several balls of yarn. The bold black and white illustrations will engage babies of every development stage. Baby London
