About None the Number

Learn to count with the #1 New York Times bestselling artist of The Day the Crayons Quit and his hilarious cast of Hueys!

“Is none a number?” you might ask. I’m glad you did. The answer is Yes! For example, how many lumps of cheese do you see next to you? The answer, depending on where you are, is likely “none.” Counting with the reader all the way up to ten, the Hueys explain numbers as only they can. Such as: The number 4 is the number of tantrums thrown by Dave every day. 7 is the number of oranges balanced on things. And 9 is the number of seagulls who attacked Frank’s French fries. Together they make quite a spectacle. But when you take away all of these fun illustrations in the book? You’re left with none!

This funny and accessible counting book from #1 New York Times bestseller Oliver Jeffers (The Day the Crayons Quit; This Moose Belongs to Me) gives the Hueys one more reason to be every young child’s best friends.



“Delightfully droll and enlightening . . . . The illustrations, ‘made with pencils and a bit of color’ on large white pages, are deceptively simple and ridiculously funny.”–School Library Journal

My Thoughts on None the Number

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Oliver Jeffers and his books.  The Hueys in None the Number: A Counting Adventure is no exception.  Jeffers brings his unique sense of humor and wacky yet charming illustrations to another fantastic picture book.

The thing I love the most about this book is the humor and the unpredictable items the reader gets to count.  I also love the debate over zero being a number.
