Sixes and Sevens

Written by John Yeoman

Illustrated by Quentin Blake

Sixes and Sevens Synopsis

When Barnaby sets off on his raft, his mother tells him to stop at each village on the way to Limber Lea. Along the way he ends up collecting a wild and surprising bunch of passengers. Will he be able to transport them all to Limber Lea without any mishaps?

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 * Learning to count doesn't get more delightful than this. A witty, perfectly shaped building story with glorious illustrations. * LoveReading4Kids * A firm favourite... Problem solving for the pre-schooler and reception set, at it's best. * THEBOOKBAG * Wonderful flowing text, combined with lively and colourful pictures make this another sure-fire success from this inspired pairing. * Parents in Touch * An offbeat counting book with characteristic humour and inventiveness, which will be recited in homes all over the world * Booktrust *
