Product Description

Review

Another little miracle from Julia Donaldson (Bookseller)

This is a counting book by the author of The Gruffalo, and our high expectations are rewarded . . . The story has layers of emotional ups and downs . . . The illustrations are endearing, with great depth and feeling: atmosphere oozes from the page. (Books for Keeps) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

When Ted falls out of bed, three tearaway mice whisk him off on a breathtaking adventure. They zoom around in fast cars, go on a balloon ride and climb a building-block mountain. It's all very exciting, but will it get Ted back to bed? This book's counting theme is perfectly woven into a magical, rhythmic text. A future classic from the award-winning author of THE GRUFFALO and THE GRUFFALO'S CHILD.

Format: Paperback
From Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo.

Large format paperback with 32 shiny high quality pages in the popular two-page spread format, with clear text.
Delightful illustrations throughout, from Anna Currey, further enhanced by meaningful facial expressions.

From the back cover:

'One ted falls out of bed.
How will he ever get back in?
Count with Ted from one to ten as he goes on an amazing night-time adventure.'

Examples of text:

'One ted falls out of bed.
He tugs and pulls the bedclothes BUT.......Two eyes are tight shut.
He jumps and shouts and makes a fuss,
Till three mice say, "Play with us!"........'

Oh dear - Ted is out of bed, and his owner is too fast asleep to notice.....but Ted finds himself taken on a great adventure as the pages count up to ten, and back again!
And..... all is well that ends well, as Ted is back where he started, too!

This is a lovely book and a favourite with my son since 18 months (he is now coming up to 2). The illustrations are endearing and the poem leads through the numbers in a simple but eloquent way. A lot of the vocabulary falls neatly into the 'first words' category (car, star, etc) so even at a very young age children can join in with the story and remember concepts. Although we have read this time and time again I am still enjoying it. Would highly recommend as a first birthday gift.

I'm only sorry that we were given this book for my daughter's 2nd birthday, as I agree with the other commenst that it's more suited to a 1 - 2 year old. But it's lovely - a counting book with a story to it, fuelled by the idea that every child has about what happens to their toys when they go to sleep.

It builds up nicely, the illustrations really help to add a sense of energy, and it's old fashioned without being too twee.
I just hope my daughter lets me read it more often.

A simply beautiful book; the text is extremely simple and is a good way of encouraging children to count, but what makes it a winner for me is the way it's illustrated. The illustrator has managed to create such a sense of fun, excitement and movement throughout that you can't help but smile your way through every page.

My one-year old enjoyed my reading of it. But compared to Julia's other tittles
this one disappointed me a bit. It's an okay book to have when you want a
change from her classics "The Gruffalo", "Room on the Broom, etc.

I know it's hard to beat the gruffalo but the drawings in this book are pretty but not a patch on the gruffalo. It's a sturdy book and will help with counting.

I love this book and so does my son (nearly two). The illustrations are beautiful; the Ted is endearing and the mice are life-like and CUTE! Although it is a counting book it does not feel at all contrived and Ted manages to go on quite an adventure in quite a short poem. No gimmicks, just a lovely book that grows on you.
