Review:

"...a stunning and unusual counting book...exquisite illustrations complemented by the wry, rhythmic text result in a book of award-winning quality." --- Christian Science Monitor

"One Woolly Wombat is a simple book, but its choice of fun words and adorable creatures makes the act of counting so much more enjoyable. This is one of those counting books kids will use until they ve mastered their first batch of digits, and then will pass on to a lucky sibling ready to sail out to sea with fourteen slick seals." --- Curled Up Kids

"Most of the animals featured in this Australian import may not be recognized by young children, but they are introduced so adorably that little ones will certainly respond to them. Using a counting-book format (although there are no pictures of the figures), this depicts one woolly wombat sunning by the sea, two cuddly koalas sipping tea, and so forth. Argent's tromp l'oile full-color pictures are an absolute delight. The wombat, sitting in a blue-and-white-striped deck chair and wearing palm tree decorated trunks and yellow sunglasses, is sure to promote giggles, as are the nine hungry goannas (reptiles that resemble alligators) in aprons and chefs hats. Other pictures are less humorous but just as striking; the 'three warbling magpies waking up the sun' gets high marks for its lush green jungles and distant mountains brushed with gold. The page facing each picture is simply an expanse of white, except for one line of text and an appropriate symbol (one deck chair, for instance), which represents the number. A vivid, unusual introduction to counting and to the animals of Australia." --- Booklist

From Publishers Weekly:

This zany counting book features Australia's creatures, from the title character to five pesky platypuses, and up to 14 slick seals. Ages 3-6.
