Product Description Mike Boldt's bright and playful picture book asks a big question: Which is more important, numbers or letters? Numbers and letters, the colorful characters in this story, compete to be the stars of this book. Their debate escalates when funny animals and props arrive—starting with 1 alligator, 2 bears, and 3 cars. Who is this book really about? In the end, the answer is clear. This fresh and funny picture book plays with both numbers and letters in the most imaginative way. Review “Readers won’t care whether it’s about letters or numbers - they will be too busy poring over the artwork and laughing.” ( Kirkus Reviews  (starred review)) “While not for children just learning numbers or the alphabet, this offering will provide a fun way for those a bit older to review both.” (School Library Journal) “Boldt’s illustrations have a dimensional, painterly quality that recalls Adam Rex’s work, and the absurd scenarios, strong-willed personalities, and visual gags will have kids laughing from A to 26.” ( Publishers Weekly)
