Max Counts to a Million is in shops from today. I went to check, and yep. There it is. On the table no less, alongside its sibling books also out this spring.

Published by Nosy Crow, it’s the story of a boy who counts to a million during lockdown. It’s funny, it’s moving, and it’s perfect for reading aloud and reflecting on all that we’ve been through in the last couple of years.

You can of course buy it online from all the usual places. I recommend buying it from an unusual place. Specifically, Zebedee’s Bookshop, which is run by my children.
