Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Numbers one through 10 appear in eye-catching compositions in this fun pop-up counting book. Two red twos slide out from behind a black pop-up box; five pop-up pink and blue fives link together, arching up from a bright yellow spread; and nine nines ascend like a rainbow. Readers can also count the number of ladybugs on each spread, which correspond to each number. The bold colors, chunky typography, and sleek design with a hint of whimsy should make this an accessible primer. All ages. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
PreS—The spreads in this colorful pop-up book take readers through the numbers in words and numerals. Large capital letters are set against solid-color backgrounds. The numerals themselves are designed to pop or fold out and up, appearing in their specific number (for example, seven number sevens, along with the word "seven"). Also scattered across the spread are the specified quantity of ladybugs. Counting them is at times a hunt, as some of them are not immediately visible. Charles Reasoner's One Blue Fish (S & S, 2010) and Salina Yoon's One Weighs a Ton (Running Pr., 2009) are sturdier movable books.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
There is no title page here; we open to the first double page where an intricately designed number 1rises opposite the spelled-out ONE. Two number 2's pop up on the next double page, with "TWO" printed in between. We may not have noticed a single ladybug on the cover or the first page, but there are two of them visible on the two numbers here. On each of the succeeding double pages, the numbers pop up: three 3's, four 4's, etc. The number is also written out, and there is the same number of ladybugs to find and count. By the time we reach 10, the double page is a riot of colors, rising numbers, and ladybugs. Some of the paper sculptures are interwoven numbers, all brightly and smoothly colored to contrast with the background colors of the pages. Number 9 comes projecting most attractively up like a skyscraper, while 10 presents the numbers in regimental horizontal rows. Fun to peruse, the pages might even inspire some attempts at paper sculpture or pop-ups. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

Kirkus Reviews
A showpiece of popup design features the numbers one through 10 worked into multileveled constructs of dazzling virtuosity. Made from brightly colored digits floating over contrasting monochromatic backgrounds (with increasing numbers of tiny ladybugs scattered throughout as extras), the pop-ups range from a die-cut "1" that rotates into place and a pair of "2"s folding out from behind a screen to phalanxes of "9"s and "10"s floating up as their spreads open. From a paper-engineering point of view, the interlocking "5"s and "8"s are particularly mind-bending--but every opening provides initial surprises, plenty of angles and spaces to explore and a rich visual experience. Though too fragile to survive long in the hands of the diapered brigade or on open library shelves, Moerbeek's creations will stand up to, and reward, repeated careful use. A grand way to promote art appreciation, as well as numeracy. (Pop-up. 5-12, adult)
