One More Wheel!

A Things-That-Go Counting Book

Colleen AF Venable; illustrated by Blythe Russo

Odd Dot


Unicycle. One wheel! Bicycle. One more wheel! Tricycle? Nope! Steamroller! One more wheel!

In this novelty concept book with a moving multi-wheel cover, readers spin their way through a tale of two animal friends competing to find the vehicle with more wheels.

Simple text and expressive artwork make this counting book an absolute delight for toddlers learning to count from one to ten. A new and often unexpected vehicle appears on each spread, from rollerskates to a jet. Readers won't be able to guess what's on the next page! A final spread expands to reveal a train with "all the wheels" and the two friends celebrating together.
