One little child is staring at something. Another joins him, then another . . . till finally ten little children are staring at something. What do they see? The suspense builds up, page after page, through text and picture, to an amusing climax. This beginner counting book has illustrations as innovative as the concept, in black and white pen-and-wash on paper. The children are from different social backgrounds, communities and abilities — a quiet comment slipped unobtrusively into the pictures.
