In Alison Jay’s 123, youngsters join in a fairy-tale adventure, counting from one to ten as they follow the dreams of a sleeping girl, meet favourite characters from fairy tales and folk stories, and then make the journey back again. Along the way, parents can help their little ones to count the frog princes, tot up the adorable gingerbread men and see if they can find the number of matching dwarves.
123 by Alison Jay
In 123, Alison Jay uses a fairytale landscape for counting as a girl dreams that she travels upon a golden goose to different fairytale scenes. Each new spread features a number from 1 to 10, and then counts back down to 1 again. Observant readers will notice that on every spread, the artist includes other sets of the number featured.
