The tiger star of this very beautiful counting book first appeared in Catherine Rayner’s picture book Augustus and his Smile. Not only does he look gorgeous in this new story – bold black stipes overlay vibrant orange and gold – but he’s hugely expressive too so that even the youngest child will understand why he’s sad at first, and how that changes as he makes new friends. The large format shows the illustrations off to full advantage and it’s a good size for sharing too. More than just a counting book, this is just the thing to introduce children to the power of art and illustration. ~ Andrea Reece
