Review quote

"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 *show more
