London: Hamish Hamilton, 1987. First edition, later printing. Thin quarto, original cloth. Signed and dated by Eric Carle on the title page. Fine in near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. The artist's first solely authored and original picture book. 1,2,3 To the Zoo features a band of animals traveling to the zoo by train. Children can count out the members of each group as they pass by, car by car. Carle's colorful trademark collage art makes this wordless counting book a fun and educational way to put children on the right track to numerical comprehension. Without any words at all, Carle is able to relate a masterful tale that captures the essences of zoology and mathematics in such a way where even a child can grasp the importance of these disciplines.
