Author(s): David Melling
This bright, bold rhyming story from the creator of Hugless Douglas is a wonderfully funny introduction to numbers and counting for the very young and great to read aloud. Count from one to ten with the adorable Splosh and his hilarious fluffy duck friends as they waddle, quack and flap along the diving board. Will they be brave enough to dive into the paddling pool? Don't miss Colour with Splosh! - the second book in this popular series and a brilliant introduction to colours. Praise for Hugless Douglas: 'A new Hugless Douglas book is always a cause for celebration.' Daily Mail
