A sensationally attractive package (chunky and substantial, with a bright red slipcase and cover) sets the stage for an inventive exploration of counting from one to ten and back again, simultaneously. As the reader turns the pages, one becomes two and then three, as ten becomes nine and then eight. The numbers unfold and transform with breathtaking ingenuity. 10 is a beautiful book that belongs in all design and gift departments.
“…an ingenious little gem.” --Kirkus “…Bataille offers an ingenious, handsomely designed book that visually relates pairs of numbers from 01 to 10, transforming one to another with the turn of each page.” --Booklist “…the sleek construction should appeal to pop-up fans of any age.” --Publishers Weekly
