Ce livre hors du commun, magnifiquement illustré, charmera à coup sûr petits et grands. Dix oiseaux est à la fois un livre pour apprendre à compter et une fable amusante sur l'ingéniosité et sur le gros bon sens.

More than a counting book, Ten Birds is a witty story that highlights ingenuity, common sense and the inadequacies of labels. Cybèle Young's intricate chiaroscuro pen-and-ink drawings depict a rich alternative world that both children and adults will marvel over.

Original title: Ten Birds
