From the Publisher
Ten topsy-turvy mice teach simple addition in this charming math picture book. Each spread features an equation showing one way to add up to ten, while the acrobatic mice split into two groups representing the numbers in the sum. 9 mice tidy. 1 mouse somersaults. 9 + 1 = 10. Some mice mop and scrub, while others spin and clown around. 8 mice cook. 2 mice juggle. 8 + 2 = 10. Look out as they swing and tumble! 7 mice wash. 3 mice spin. 7 + 3 = 10. All the mice are busy as they act out different ways to make the same sum.

Booklist (February 15, 2014 (Vol. 110, No. 12))
Preschool-Grade 1. First published in Australia, this brightly illustrated picture book is a winning combination of basic mathematics and high spirits. On a series of lively double-page spreads, 10 pert little mice cavort through their household chores, which they perform with varying degrees of dexterity and acrobatic skill. After awakening in their triple-decker bunk bed, 9 mice tidy the bed, while 1 mouse somersaults out of it: “9+1=10.” Then 8 mice cook pancakes, while 2 mice juggle fruit: “8+2=10.” The trend continues, with a decreasing number of mice actually working and an increasing number goofing off, but they always add up to 10. The text works well, setting up the book’s structure, while the high-spirited pencil, liquid acrylic, and collage illustrations give it a joyful look and offer plenty of amusing details for kids to discover on their own. A playful introduction to counting, sorting, and sets.
