Children's book Numbers by PatrickGeorge Books
PatrickGeorge are a superb illustration and design company based in Ramsgate who also create and publish a series of high quality books for young people. These hardback books have a special idea to create an interactive experience for young readers; pages of images are interspersed with a transparent page that changes the image as it is turned. The clever device leads to an understanding of consquences, from what happens if you mix red and blue to closing a cage and capturing an animal.
"Strong transparent pages, once turned, do wonders with what comes before and after" The Independent on Sunday
With Numbers you can enjoy a fun and interactive book of counting with a difference. Ten fat flies buzzing around, but along came a spider and ate one! So how many flies are left? Turn the page and see, flip the transparent page back and forth to find out what happens, with bright, bold, graphic numbers and strikingly colourful illustrations on every page. Packed with ideas it provokes many opportunities for discussion and further reading and learning, with its simple and cleverly-executed design.
52pp (including 11 acetates), hardback
