Author(s): Julia Donaldson
When Ted falls out of bed, three tearaway mice whisk him off on a breathtaking adventure. They zoom around in fast cars, go on a balloon ride and climb a building-block mountain. It's all very exciting, but will Ted ever get back to his bed? This book's counting theme is woven perfectly into a magical, rhythmic text by the former Children's Laureate and author of THE GRUFFALO, Julia Donaldson, and is beautifully illustrated by Anna Currey.
Count with Ted from one to ten as he goes on an amazing night-time adventure.
Julia Donaldson, the 2011-13 Waterstone's Children's Laureate, is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's most-loved picture books, most notably THE GRUFFALO, which has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. In addition, Julia writes fiction as well as poems, plays and songs -- and her brilliant live children's shows are always in demand. Anna Currey's warm, classic watercolour style has brought to life many enchanting picture books. Her previous work for Macmillan includes ROSIE'S HAT, also written by Julia. Anna was born in Norfolk, grew up in Ireland and now lives near Bath, with her husband.
