David Pelham, Sophie Pelham. Little Simon, $16.95 (18pp) ISBN 978-0-689-85387-6
In this companion to A Is for Animals, Counting Creatures: Pop-Up Animals From 1 to 100 by David Pelham, working with his daughter Sophie, goes from one to 20, then counts to 100 by tens. The animals pop up from behind colorful, numbered flaps-two per page-in alliterative matches, such as 16 spiders and 40 finches (a cautionary note to parents at bedtime: children may insist upon counting all 80 aphids).
