I hadn't thought of it before, but Abigail is a perfect name for a giraffe- and Abigail loves to count and teaches her friends to count in a field of flowers.   But when you and your friends have been so busy counting that you haven't noticed it getting dark, what do you do next?

If your child is at the stage when counting is a great way to pass the time, then Abigail is a perfect story for them.  Abigail tries to count the leaves on the tree, but Zebra is eating them - "'crunch, munch, lunch."   When Abigail tries to count Zebra's stripes, Zebra just can't stay still.  Once Abigail has enthused her friends about counting, the sky's the limit!  And my five year old loved the surprise ending!

Catherine Rayner's books are beautiful:  Her characters are gentle, with child-like innocence,  and her illustrations are rich with fabulous colours and texture that  make you want to stroke the pages.  Catherine Rayner has won numerous prizes including the Kate Greenaway CILIP Medal for 'Augustus and his Smile'.  In an interview with book blogger; The Book Sniffer, Catherine tells us that she gets her inspiration for her characters from her pets.

See Catherine Rayner reading Abigail in this video.

Abigail  is published by Little Tiger Press who have kindly provided the review copy and a prize copy.
