When a plucky little warthog sets out on an adventure, he meets all sorts of fascinating creatures, from two angry bees all the way up to nine scared monkeys. Children will love lifting the flaps to count the hidden animals and following the ten muddy footprints that lead to a fierce and funny surprise!

"A lively interactive counting book from the team behind Just Right for Christmas. . . . Beardshaw’s mixed-media artwork contributes significantly to the story’s physical comedy and sense of adventure." — Publishers Weekly
