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 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
"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) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Exquisitely illustrated, I can't rate Quentin Blake highly enough, and any child (or adult) reading it will adore it. And if you love this, try another Quentin Blake book called "Patrick" about two children, an old violin, lots of sparkly, magical happenings. You won't be disappointed.
This is a definite hit for young children and some adults! You will find yourself being drawn into the story, smiling and laughing along the way.
This fantastic story is sutible for toddlers,children and adults.The pictures are superb and my class like it because Quentin Blake is a incredible author and illustrator.
Professor Dupont has 10 cocktoos.Every day Professor Dupont does the same thing.Find out what happens to him and play a little birdy spotting game.
I loved this book!It really blows your mind. The cheeky cocktoos really make me laugh.The pitures really do jump out at you. Silly Professor Dupont is sillier than the smart cocktoos.
Cockatoos is about a man called Proffeser Dupont and his ten multicoulored cockatoos.Proffesser
This book is very good because you can play a little game where you find the missing cockatoos . Quentin Blake thinks about the pictures first, he thinks about what children would want to see in the pictures. Professor Dupont is a funny character he is stuck in his ways and does the same thing everyday! Will he ever learn? The cockatoos are sneaky little birds.
This book is suitable for toddlers, children and adults.

one of the best Quentin Blake solo works. I love the disparity between text and image that'll have your little one's yelling at the hapless chap searching for his hiding birds!Published on 9 May 2014 by UniTutor
I use this story to help my 4 year with maths/number-line. We counted the birds and pointed to the number on the number line. Lovely story ;)Published on 4 May 2014 by Louise loud
