A lyrical look at numbers, with a philosophical twist!

2 is a little. 0 is nothing. 1 is not enough.

Well, sometimes ... 1 sun is a lot. 1 dog is a lot. 2 can even be too much. And when it comes to rain clouds, 0 is perfect. It's curious, but true. It all depends on what you're counting!

Bestselling and critically acclaimed author Muon Thi Van offers an innovative and thought-provoking look at the question, How many is enough? Simple page by simple page, young readers are shown examples of how, when counting things, the smallest numbers - 0, 1 and 2 - can mean a little, a lot or just the right amount. With its playful spirit and lyrical text, this unique, philosophical picture book promotes critical thinking, observation and discussion, even among the youngest children, and introduces a new way to appreciate numbers. Full of energy and humour, Pierre Pratt's illustrations tell a story within the story that adds a separate narrative layer to the spare text.
