A counting story that goes wrong when one hungry little T-Rex can't help himself from gobbling up the other dinosaurs!

Let's count dinosaurs! Rex the T-Rex is 1. Add Patty the Diplodocus, that's 2. And here's comes Brian the Anklyosaurus to make 3. But wait, where's Brian gone? Rex? Rex! You didn't EAT him, did you? Oh NAUGHTY Rex! The truth is, you just CAN'T count on dinosaurs.

In this counting book with a difference, Philip Ardagh and Elissa Elwick bring prehistoric chaos and trouble-making dinosaurs to every page for a truly fun, interactive way to learn how to count to 10.

Reviews for You Can't Count on Dinosaurs: An Almost Counting Book

Bright and bold, this interactive picture book will help young children count to 10 while they try to keep track of some very troublesome dinosaurs. * Sunday Express (S Magazine) * No toddler's library would be complete without a book about dinosaurs, and preschool children will find plenty of prehistoric chaos in You Can't Count on Dinosaurs by the ever popular Philip Ardagh. In this almost counting book , the cast ranges from Rex the Tyrannosaurus to Patty the Apatosaurus - but in a teasingly anarchic plot, we learn that no dinosaur can be counted on. * The Telegraph *
