Cockatoos

Cockatoos Synopsis

When eccentric Professor Dupont tries to track down his troupe of brightly-coloured cockatoos, they're always just one step ahead of him. This counting book won the 1992 Smarties Children's Choice Award.

Cockatoos Press Reviews

For pure fun, read again - and again - Quentin Blake's masterly Cockatoos -- Gwynneth Bailey * TES * A wonderfully enjoyable story * Daily Mail * Must be the funniest and subtles counting book, so funny you can't count anyway. Irresistibly daft, devastatingly droll * Guardian * There has never been, and probably never will be, a counting book as funny and delightful as this * Books for your Children *
