    PreS. The team that created the Caldecott Honor Book Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type (2000) and the recent Click, Clack, Quackity-Quack: An Alphabet Adventure (2005) offers another rambunctious farmyard farce. This one plays with numbers, offering not only a simple, interactive counting rhyme but also a trickster story with a real surprise. From "1 farmer sleeping," "two feet creeping," "six goats load the boat," and so on until "10 fish ready to go," the cumulative verse and wild, thick-lined cartoon artwork follow the progress of the animals as they ready themselves for a secret fishing expedition. Preschoolers may need help processing some of the scenarios, including the ending (particularly if they failed to notice the aquarium in the first picture). Most, however, will enjoy the counting exercise as well as the suspense of the story, and they'll want to go back to the beginning to see what they missed. What fish? Gone where?

    Fast on the webbed feet of Click, Clack, Quackity Quack: An Alphabetical Adventure comes this counting companion, again starring Duck as the instigator of mischievous, though well-intentioned fun. As the farmer naps on the couch near his soothing fish tank ("1 farmer sleeping"), Duck ("2 feet creeping") and the barnyard crew sneak into the house on a hush-hush mission--something that involves "3 buckets piled high" outside the window and "4 chickens standing by." At book's end, readers learn that Duck's master plan was to liberate the farmer's finned friends (a clue is planted on the title page). Though not quite as charming as its abecedarian cousin, this slight volume still offers a comical introduction to numerals one through 10. Lewin's black-outlined menagerie is as breezy as ever, tiptoeing, climbing or splashing through lots of white space to the final destination. Ages 2-5. (Jan.)

    PreS-K- Some familiar faces from Cronin and Lewin's well-known series that began with Click, Clack, Moo (S & S, 2000) appear in this clever adventure. The farmyard crew is engineering a "fishy" rescue of sorts, releasing 10 fish in 10 buckets while the farmer slumbers. As the animals make their mischief, numbers from 1 to 10 are introduced, beginning with "1 farmer sleeping. 2 feet creeping." The cartoon illustrations have the same great appeal as the previous books and combine successfully with this very basic introduction to numeric concepts. A great tool for parents and teachers seeking to make learning fun.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA
