There are many ways to count. We can count the clouds lying on the grass, we can count the ants coming out from the ant hill sitting next to a friend, we can count the poppies in the fields while we walk… or we can tell a tale at the same time as we count the characters that tell it… But, when we get to number twelve, the moon comes out, sends everybody off to sleep, and the count down begins! This album proposes an amusing game of counting and tales. Between counting and telling, we count numbers and count on a story. Will it then be a story counted on and told?


Description

There are many ways to count. We can count the clouds lying on the grass, we can count the ants coming out from the ant hill sitting next to a friend, we can count the poppies in the fields while we walk… or we can tell a tale at the same time as we count the characters that tell it… But, when we get to number twelve, the moon comes out, sends everybody off to sleep, and the count down begins! This album proposes an amusing game of counting and tales. Between counting and telling, we count numbers and count on a story. Will it then be a story counted on and told? And besides, if we count the syllables to make verses from, that’s three times counted on, and if we count on what the illustrations tell us it’s… the never ending tale, or better said, the never ending tale to be counted on. A story created by Pep Bruno and thought to be read and narrated aloud, which is built on the entrance and exit of the characters, and adding and subtraction with a dozen characters, a return adventure. This album offers us a story with many possibilities and more than one reading. And if to all this we add (once again, counting!) some illustrations in which Mariona Cabassa, taking care herself, takes care of every detail, the result is a beautifully illustrated story, with an amusing text, rhyming and, above all, apt to be told and counted on.
