123 starts with one dog and builds up with different items as we count up to 20. At the end of the adventure night has fallen and the two friends gaze at 100 stars.

Up and Down sees these best friends discovering opposites on a crisp winter walk. From climbing up hills to sledge down and searching high and low for wildlife to snuggling up with a warm drink next to their cold snowman and saying goodnight to the dark as they go back to the lights of their cosy house.


Delightfully illustrated scenes show the amazing beauty of the countryside through the seasons, from woods and meadows to rivers and hilltops. Our pair of friends discover huge skies, magnificent wildlife, changing weather and bountiful plants. Nature at its best.

Stylish and delicate, these books perfectly portray the carefree feeling and complete joy there is in exploring the natural world. Instantly engaging and a perfect invitation for young children to get out and explore the world around them.

Buy the books from Waterstones – ABC, Colours, 123, Up and Down.

  1. They look lovely; I really like the illustrator’s style. Good to know your 2 and 4 year olds enjoyed them too – I’m always on the lookout for things both my two can enjoy together.
