… charming and quietly amusing … a clever book that will do much to enhance a child’s vocabulary as well as encouraging small geniuses to count not only fowards but backwards.’

A hilarious countdown to the end of a busy day in a beauty parlour. The illustrations extend the humour and add to the chaos. Entertaining and recommended.
Margaret Hamilton

‘The text of this entertaining little story reads aloud well and is nicely complemented by the clear and expressive illustrations. The gentle humour of the book, which keeps going right through to the endpapers, will appeal to preschoolers and it will also make an enjoyable read-aloud text for younger school classes.’
