Product description


Field's illustrations are bursting with energy and silliness, and Gray's fertile imagination conjures up bizarre scenarios that will have little ones giggling out loud and making up new rhymes of their own. An absolute treat. - Daily Mail

Brilliant illustrations with hilarious story outcome... perfect author/illustrator pairing. A real winner. - Peters eGazette

A hilarious rhyming story which has animals sitting on more and more unlikely things, all in the interests of rhyme... perfectly pitched for young children. - Parents in Touch

A hilarious tale with brilliant illustrations, this book is absolutely perfect for storytime. - Bookseller --This text refers to the paperback edition.


"Bright primary colors, cartoon animals, rhyming words, party food, balloons, and animal antics keep readers entertained as they add more legs in this extended mental math problem. This story is great for introducing or reinforcing the concept of addition for the youngest of math students."

--Catholic Library World

How Many Legs? is a zany, funny, wildly fantastic counting mystery that masquerades as an animal parade, where legs are the operative currency to be counted. Hopelessly funny images of a succession of eccentric animals and accouterments involve the reader's math and counting skills in a hilarious cavalcade of creatures. What en effortless and fun way for children to learn mental counting! How Many Legs? is entertaining education crossing poetry, math, art, and memory all simultaneously, with effortless delight."
The Midwest Book Review

"Kes Gray and Jim Field have written and illustrated a nice counting book. Many animals with various number of legs are introduced in this story. The illustrations are humorous and you and your young child will enjoy them."
Dad of Divas,
