Everyone is invited to join Arusha, Mosi and Tumpe as they set out on a counting journey through the Tanzanian plains. Along the way, they spy all sorts of animals - elephants, lions and monkeys - while learning to count from one to ten in both English and Swahili.
Review in the Guardian (UK) 22 Feb 2002 (http://books.guardian.co.uk/review/story/0,12084,899639,00.html)
Subtitled "A Counting Journey through Tanzania", this is a glorious safari through the country's grasslands. Arusha, Mosi and Tumpe set off on an expedition with their Masai friends. All the animals that might be seen along the way - hefty hippos, lordly lions, woolly wildebeests and enormous elephants - are counted in the simple rhyming text. The book includes an introduction to the Masai people and the numbers are also written in Swahili.
