Review:

Professor Dupont is a creature of habit. Every morning he follows the same routine, culminating in his daily greeting to his ten cockatoos. One day, the cockatoos decide to have some fun and escape from the conservatory. When Professor Dupont comes down in the morning he finds they are all missing.

Readers will delight in Professor Dupont's search for his missing cockatoos, especially as he can't see them while it's clear to the reader exactly where they are all hiding. Quentin Blake's characteristically brilliant illustrations make this a counting book with a difference which will delight audiences of all ages.--Philippa Reece

Review:

"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)
