LoveReading View on Sixes and Sevens

Learning to count doesn’t get more delightful than this. Barnaby sits off on a simple journey on his raft. All he has to do is to pick up some passengers along the way…What can possibly go wrong? Clever Barnaby is inventive in how he can keep them apart. One cat, two mice, three stiff schoolmistresses and an increasing host of other animals later it all gets a bit chaotic but Barnaby reaches his destination safely and hands over his unusual cargo. A witty, perfectly shaped building story with glorious illustrations.

Sixes and Sevens Press Reviews

'This zany number book collaboration between Yeoman and Blake is tremendously successful. Verse and illustration complement each other with delicious absurdity.’ Books for Keeps
