Creator and engineer of the elegant Color Surprises and Black Cat, White Cat: A Pop-Up Book of Opposites, Chuck Murphy has also crafted an amazingly simple yet beautiful counting book, One to Ten: Pop-Up Surprises! This counting book doesn't mess around with fancy rhymes or cutesy sheep--open the first spread and you'll see a bold, fat number one--white on black--right next to a bold black number two on a white page. Pull the number one down, and one tropical spotted frog swims off the page! Lift and turn the number two to the right, and two toucans pop out from a leafy nest. Three colorful beetles crawl out of the number three with the slide of a tab. You get the idea--Murphy's almost breathtaking pop-up surprises take readers all the way to the number ten. Pop-up book collectors and budding bean counters alike will revel in this instructive, interactive masterpiece. (Ages 4 and older) --Karin Snelson
From Publishers Weekly
Murphy's clever book delivers "surprises" indeed. Behind large numerals-rendered alternately in black on white and white on black-lurk unexpected, vibrantly colored characters, starting with the blue-and-orange frog that hops forth when the "1" is pulled forward. Two toucans "beak" out from behind (where else?) the "2," while the "9" reveals prettily posed parrots ("Polly want a picture?"). Not all the numerals are pop-ups: pulling the tab at "3" rotates a flat trio of beetles (distinctly non-musical); in like fashion, a kaleidoscopic tropical fish septet swims out from the "7." And the last numeral only looks like a zero: pulling its tab uncovers a gaggle of capering kids and the missing "1." So the final page is indeed a "10"-as is, in fact, the whole book. Ages 2-4.

Stark black and white numbers are lifted to reveal colorful frogs and birds, bugs and butterflies, cats, dogs, seashells and even little boys and girls. Three of the ten manipulatives are tabs, which are more difficult for young children, but any adult would be eager to help out with this beautiful book.
Our two-year old eagerly yells out each number and then counts the revealed objects. With this gorgeous teaching aid, learning is not only painless, but a pleasure.
