Teeth, tails & tentacles : an animal counting book by Christopher Wormell( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 1,590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first portion of the work is a counting book covering the numbers one to twenty with block prints of animals. The second portion of the work has factual information concerning the animals. With his trademark colorful and compelling images of animals both familiar and exotic, acclaimed British illustrator Christopher Wormell brings a uniquely artful point of view to the traditional counting book. Wormell's inventive approach to illustrating the numbers from 1 to 20 highlights intriguing parts, behaviors, or features of specific animals, rather than simply increasing the numbers of the animals themselves. This new perspective presents an opportunity for further parent-child exploration of the animal-How many legs does the camel have? What color is the ladybug?-in keeping with the current trend toward interdisciplinary education for the very young
