A brilliant and fun counting book from the creator of the bestselling Hairy Maclary, now available in durable board book format!
In the Manglemunching Forest there's a Nickle Nackle tree,
Growing Nickle Nackle berries that are red as red can be.


And that's not all that's nestling on the twisty branches of this laden tree. Count up some fabulous Lynley Dodd creations, such as one Ballyhoo bird, kicking up a din and two squawking Scritchet birds with legs so twiggy thin, to nine friendly Natter birds, building nice new nests to ten fussy Fissick birds in yellow feathered vests.

A wonderfully funny counting book to read aloud with babies and young children. Age 0+

Reviews

The Nickle Nackle Tree, filled with inventive language and illustrations, [is] a long-time favourite. Impossible not to like a tree growing in a Manglemunching Forest.
