A fun lift-the-flap counting book from Nigel Gray and Bob Graham

The story begins: "My dog got fatter and fatter. I didn't know what was the matter!". When a litter of puppies arrives, the reason becomes clear! Lift the flaps as the little girl meets puppies, kittens and finally her very own little baby brothers in this fun, simple introduction to the concept of birth and life cycles.


Nigel Gray grew up in England in foster homes and he never knew there were such things as picture books. Today, Nigel is the author of more than 60 books for children, including "A Balloon for Grandad" and "A Country Far Away".

Bob Graham, Australia’s leading picture-book maker, has written and illustrated many children’s picture books including "Oscar’s Half Birthday", "Buffy" and "Let’s Get a Pup". He won the 2000 Smarties Gold Medal for "Max", the 2003 Kate Greenaway Medal for "Jethro Byrde, Fairy Child" and the Australian Children’s Book of the Year Award an unprecedented four times!


Told in flawless rhyming text, Nigel Gray has delivered a gorgeous story for very young readers about where babies come from, without any of the gory details. Bob Graham’s whimsical illustrations perfectly capture the worn out look of a new mum (in both animal and human form), as well as the energy and love that new little creatures bring into a home.
