Award-winning former Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne takes readers on a counting journey from 1 Gorilla through other monkeys such as chimpanzees, mandrills and baboons before reaching 10 Lemurs. From them, he leaps to himself and all humans showing how all primates are inter-related. All the illustrations are stunning and with all the colour and drama of the natural world, Anthony Browne's detailed depictions of monkeys and apes bring a new depth to first numbers and convey an important message to us all. It encourages early numeracy through Anthony Browne's beautiful artwork. It also carries an important message about protecting our environment.
