Fans of A IS FOR MUSK OX will be happy to know that Musk Ox and Zebra are back...and trying to make it through a counting book. As usual, Musk Ox has his own ideas and Zebra does not fail to show his frustration trying to get Musk Ox back on track. Will they make it from 1-10, or will their efforts end in annoyance?

Cabatingan and Myers pair up again in this second in the Musk Ox series. Cabatingan's witty, sharp text mixes perfectly with Myer's grinning anti-hero and hapless zebra.

Praise For Musk Ox Counts

“In a genuinely funny companion to A Is for Musk Ox (Roaring Brook, 2012), zebra and musk ox are arguing about how to compose a counting, er, "addition" book . . . Will this duo return to wreak havoc with colors, shapes, opposites? One can only hope.” —School Library Journal

“More crazy hijinks from the irrepressible musk ox and his sidekick control-freak zebra will engender belly laughs in Cabatingan and Myers' highly original sequel to the wild and wacky alphabet book A Is for Musk Ox (2012).” —Kirkus Reviews

“A witty addition to the Musk Ox series.” —Booklist
