This counting book is a diminutive eye-opener to the recursive style that math & language share in echo of the infinite. It is 1 himself, lean, tall & svelt in his blue bow tie, who opens the work by juggling a few digits. Later, 8 sits at dinner but "leaves peas on his plate." A palm-size book in an envelope on the inside back cover continues the tale. But wait! A third book, the size of a postage stamp, is tucked into the smaller book.

Review:
This book is good for two reasons. The first reason is the illustrations. The illustrations in the book follow the development of the story. As Luke begins he doesn't seem to "fit in" with his peers because they all make realistic artwork and his is more abstract. Once Luke visits the art museum he realizes that his style is not bad, just different, and the illustration begin to take on more abstract and colorful styles. The second reason I liked this book is the character development. When the story begins Luke has difficulty accepting that he must follow the instructions for making art the way his teacher instructs. As the story unfolds, Luke begins to realize that he has a gift for abstract art, and that it isn't bad at all how he paints. The big idea of this story is to be yourself, and don't let anyone tell you to stop being you.… (mais)
