How Many Legs?
By Kes Gray
Illustrated by Jim Field
A zany rhyming counting story with laugh-out-loud illustrations from an award-winning team.
From the award-winning Kes Gray and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Jim Field, comes an hilarious counting picture book about our four-legged - and two-legged and eight-legged - friends!
How many legs would there be if a polar bear came for tea? How high would the leg count go if a squid rode in on a buffalo? As more and more animals join in the fun, count along if you can!
Praise for Oi, Frog! also by Kes Gray and Jim Field: 'An absolute treat.' - Daily Mail
