In her signature style, Laurie Keller has created a wonderfully inventive counting book—from one to twenty—that will keep children laughing and learning.
Laurie Keller is the acclaimed author-illustrator of Do Unto Otters, Arnie, the Doughnut, The Scrambled States of America, and Open Wide: Tooth School Inside, among numerous others. She grew up in Muskegon, Michigan, and always loved to draw, paint and write stories. She earned a B.F.A. at Kendall College of Art and Design, then worked at Hallmark as a greeting card illustrator for seven-and-a-half years, until one night she got an idea for a children’s book. She quit her job, moved to New York City, and soon had published her first book. She loved living in New York, but she has now returned to her home state, where she lives in a little cottage in the woods on the shore of Lake Michigan.
“Laurie Keller is a goofball. She’s a genius. She’s a goofball and a genius.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Keller’s riotous collages . . .which are filled with gleeful puns, winning characters, and over-the-top silliness, are as manic and fun as a sugar high.”
“Off-the-wall humor and zany artwork”
—Seattle Post Intelligencer
