Product Description:

The key to the book's impact lies in the dignity of a portrait sitting that Browne confers on creatures more commonly seen behind glass walls. Every face has a discernible personality. Even the lemurs are distinct individuals, with variations in snouts, eyes, and ears.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The text is spare: "1 gorilla"; "2 orangutans"; "3 chimpanzees"; and so forth, concluding after "10 lemurs" with depictions of the author and an array of humans. The portraits, however, are extraordinary: Browne's exquisite precision, with delicate hatching of fur and careful stippled delination of facial lines, becomes jubilant with colour and personality.
—Bulletin of the Centre for Children's Books (starred review)

In this seemingly simple counting book from one to ten (plus a final coda), generous white space and classic type treatment balance expertly with large head-and-shoulders portraits of primates...Browne's watercolour technique is just about perfect, combining realism and exaggeration, mass and focus.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

Browne really cranks up the colour intensity in this gorgeous, large-trim portrait gallery of primates.
—Kirkus Reviews
