As you already know from reading this blog, we are great Oliver Jeffers fans and have read many of his books. I found “The Huey’s in: None the number” in the library and I had to bring it home to share with the children as I know how much they loved “The Huey’s in: It wasn’t me”.
“The Huey’s in: None the number” is a number book with a humorous twist. One of the Huey’s is wondering if “none” is a number. Another of the Huey’s explains that none is a number and he goes on to say none is just like any other number. The story goes from 0 up to 10, but will the Huey’s understand none is a number by the end of the book?
The illustrations are typically fantastic and it is has extra handwritten text which adds to the detail of the story and often humour to it too.
This book is a great way to introduce the concept of “0” to children.
Oliver Jeffers does it again, highly recommend!
