review: Amazing and Incredible Counting Stories

Max Grover’s counting book is hilarious.

I knew as soon as I opened it up and saw the giant Folk-Arty spread headlined:

Sleepless Residents Upset by 2 Giant Banjos.

Numbers are incorporated into crazy, preposterous or just odd headlines, such as:

Factory Produces 100 Yard Sticks at a Time

22 Scientists Stumped by 23-Piece Puzzle

4 Jelly Faucets Prove Big Time Saver for Kids

A girl shows how quickly she can make sandwiches using this new device. Now she has more time to spend with her pet alligator.

After noting that the drawings are funnily wonderful, too, I rest my case.
