Book Review


One musk ox, two yaks, and three elephants might work well as a counting book for most people, but not for Musk Ox. Musk Ox is alone on the first page of the book, so he sets out to find ways to join each of the other pages. In order to make his plan work, he has to do some creative counting - such as combining five goats and one musk ox to make six relatives - but this infuriates Zebra, who just wants to live in a typical counting book.
