Ten Cars and a Million Stars

By Teresa Heapy
Illustrated by Sue Heap

Count from 1 to 100 with Alice in this charming non-fiction picture book, with words by Teresa Heapy and pictures by Sue Heap.

From the bestselling team behind the Very Little series, this is a witty counting book for children learning numeracy. Big sister Alice is brilliant at counting – one day, she decides to show her baby brother how it's done. She starts simply enough: the Baby has one giant teddy, two floppy bunnies and three shaky rattles. Soon Alice has counted all the way up to 100 toys – and the Baby is very impressed. After 100, however, things get a little trickier. How many snowflakes are there in a snowstorm? Or stars in the sky? With a charming twist at the end, Teresa Heapy's gentle story is the perfect match for Sue Heap's bright, child-friendly pictures.

  • Count with Alice is perfect for children developing numeracy skills and, depending on its success, there is potential for follow-ups focusing on other early-learning concepts (colours, patterns, opposites, spelling, etc).
  • Heapy and Heap have already had success with their Very Little series, published by David Fickling Books – including an Instagram endorsement from David Beckham!
  • Pictures by the illustrator of Polly's Pink Pyjamas and Mine!
