100 Bears

100 Bears

By Magali Bardos
Published by Flying Eye Books

A counting book with a difference! This fun, anarchic book from French illustrator, Magali Bardos,  takes readers on a journey from the number 1 to number 100, chasing a group of adventurous bears through mountains and forests and down into the city.

A stylish and funky counting book, 100 Bears breaks away from traditional counting books and adds a fun narrative as you count up to 100. It's the perfect way for parents and children to count together. The story is wacky and often humorous, with the bears making fools of the hunters as they are chased here and there.

Magali Bardos' illustration style is produced using similar techniques to silk screened printing. Her illustrations are simple and flat, using a loud colour palette to make simple shapes to pop on the page. There's plenty to see on each spread and lots to count. From hunters, to foxes to bees and a hundred trees, you won't get bored of this counting book in a hurry! 

100 Bears is available to buy now from all good bookshops and from the Flying Eye Books website. I recommend checking out Dogs In Cars by Flying Eye Books too if you're looking for more alternative books to counting.
