Julia Donaldson is the author of some of the world's best-loved children's books, including modern classics The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child, which together have sold over 17 million copies worldwide, and the hugely successful What the Ladybird Heard adventures. Julia also writes fiction, including the Princess Mirror-Belle books illustrated by Lydia Monks, as well as poems, plays and songs - and her brilliant live shows are always in demand. Sharon King-Chai is an enormously talented designer and illustrator. Having grown up in Australia, she moved to London in 2003 and since then has brought her style and eye for beautiful design to album covers, book covers, stationery and her books including Starbird and the award-winning Animalphabet, a collaboration with Julia Donaldson.
King-Chai's sumptuous, vibrant artwork, the cleverly designed and shaped pages, and Donaldson's rhythmic words make Counting Creatures a rich learning experience and a delight to read aloud and share * Lancashire Post, Lytham St Annes Express, The Garstang Courier, The Gazette, Chorley Guardian, St Helens The Reporter, Lancaster Guardian, The Clitheroe Advertiser and Times, PendleToday, The Visitor and Wigan Today *
