Praise For…

“The repeated practice of counting every time a new fish is added is sure to delight youngsters. One comically big gulp at the end makes everything come full circle. It's a fish-eat-fish world out there; kids need to learn how to count in order to survive.” - Kirkus Reviews

“The bright, cartoonish illustrations, done in a mostly primary color palette, will attract many eyes. . . . With its fun design, interesting fish, and surprise ending, this is a counting book with bite.” - Booklist

"This is truly a counting story with bite . . . A humorous book to read counting backward and forward." - School Library Journal

"Crisp illustrations and a creamy color palette create a playful, upbeat mood. . . Delivers big laughs while neatly (and quickly) bringing readers back to one." - Publishers Weekly

“Stylish and playful.” - starred review, Publishers Weekly on JOURNEY TO THE MOON

“Mansfield's paper-collage illustrations a suitably murky atmosphere . . . . A little chiller for Halloween or any time the lights are low.” - Kirkus Reviews on WHAT'S THAT IN THE WATER?

“Mansfield’s focused gray and blue palette and chunky characterizations keep the thrills and chills on the light side.” - Publishers Weekly on WHAT'S THAT IN THE WATER?
