"Stylish silkscreenlike illustrations and opportunities for both counting and guessing what happens next should keep copies of this chunky book well-loved."
— Publishers' Weekly
"A terrific companion to Alphablock that counts from one to 10, and up by 10s to 100, using cause and effect."
— Jennifer M. Brown
"The clever, nostalgic art is reminiscent of Sara Gillingham’s work in Stephen Krensky’s I Know a Lot
