Countablock By Christopher Franceschelli & Peskimo


Brand Abrams & Chronicle Books

Countablock features thick pages cut into the shape of each number, creating a sort of peek-through guessing game around the number form itself.  One egg chick!  From snowmen to puddles and acorns to oaks, quantities are illustrated twice: both before and after their 'transformations'.  As children interact with the pages, they will familiarise themselves not only with the numbers 1-100 and associated quantities, but with each numeral's physicality -- angles, holes and curves, both front and back.  Illustrated by hip British design team Peskimo, this fresh take on the 1-2-3s encourages readers to manipulate numbers in a whole new way.

Christopher Franceschelli is a seasoned publisher, editor and creator of children’s books. He currently runs Chronicle’s Handprints imprint and the SmartInk packaging company.
