One Some Manyby Marthe Jocelyn, Tom Slaughter
One Some Many by Marthe Jocelyn and Tom Slaughter is an excellent early introduction to numbers and to the principles of modern art. It is the perfect companion to 1 2 3, a counting book with a difference. Slaughter's bold, Matisse-inspired paper cuts illustrate basic artistic elements, including color, form, and line, while the playful and inventive text introduces the concepts of quantity that children find most puzzling (and that adults have the most difficulty explaining!). After all, how many is many? Some? A few?
Marthe Jocelyn is an award-winning author and illustrator who worked for many years as a toy designer before turning her hand to writing. Her picture book, Hannah's Collections, was shortlisted for a Governor General's Literary Award for illustration. She has written five novels for older readers, including Mable Riley, which will also release this Spring.
Tom Slaughter's art has been exhibited in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan. His prints are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum. His first book, 1 2 3: A Counting Book was published to critical acclaim in the Fall of 2003. One Some Many is his second picture book.
Marthe Jocelyn and Tom Slaughter are married and divide their time between Stratford, Ontario and New York City. They have two daughters. One Some Many is their first collaboration.
