About the Author

Mitsumasa Anno was one of Japan's leading illustrators and book designers as well as an award-winning contributor to the children's book field. His challenging books entice the reader into the exciting world of imagination and logic. He was always been fascinated by topology and by the beauty of the mathematical world, and this is evident in all his works. Born in 1926 in Tsuwano, a small historic town in the western part of Japan, the artist graduated from the Yamaguchi Teacher Training College and served as primary school teacher for some time before starting his career in art. He lived in the suburbs of Tokyo with his wife, a son, and a daughter until he passed away in 2020.

Reviews

"An excellent introduction to number systems and a beautiful wordless picture book as well. A counting book that's numero uno. -- School Library Journal"Handsomely designed and produced, with graceful, leafy borders, carefully rendered pictures, and, facing them, woodgrain upper-case letters that seem to have been lovingly hand-carved, this looks like the beautiful sort of book that wins prizes for graphic excellence. And so it is." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"One of the few truly intelligent counting books ever produced-and a work of art besides. Anno's village is alive in his lovely watercolor paintings, and every child will be subtly, irresistibly pulled in, counting trees and trucks, flowers and fish, ducks and diapers." -- New York Times"The best alphabet book of the year." -- Time magazine"A clean, subtle ABC worth the long look that will idelibly imprint each letter." -- American Library Association (starred review)
