Ten Scared Fish is an animal counting book with a difference. Following the river to the sea, the reader meets and counts the animals until finally ten little fish meet a big scary shark! Bold illustrations and a delightfully playful text help readers familiarise themselves with prepositions as well as animals and numbers.
"These simple concept books from Australia are elevated above the ordinary by rich language and the celebration of indigenous art. Wow! The art just pops off the page with bright colors." -- Parents Express
