Winner of the 1997 Nestlé Smarties Book Prize (Bronze) A wonderfully illustrated Caribbean poem that helps children learn to count. How much fruit do you think one small girl can manage to eat in one day? In the case of the narrator of this counting poem, the answer is a lot! Count from one to ten and learn the names of some Caribbean fruits, and find out what happens after eating a cocktail of mangoes, bananas, and more. Packed with sumptuous illustrations by David Axtell, Valerie Bloom's brilliant rhyming text makes this Caribbean counting poem an absolute joy to read aloud.

Valerie Bloom was born in Jamaica and came to England in 1979. One of the UK's finest poets for children, she has performed extensively in both Britain and the Caribbean in schools, universities and theatres.
