"A counting book and so much more, from the incomparable Werner Zimmermann. The book was inspired by Werner's granddaughter, who was fascinated by his goldfish pond. But this is not a simple counting book - we also see all the flora and fauna of this tiny ecosystem change and interact over the course of a single day. In this unique vision, perspectives shift not by angle but by the hour, as the sun moves across the sky. Children can count the fish and spot the other pond denizens. Adults will appreciate the peacefulness and beauty of the paintings and note details such as the shifting light on the water as the book progresses. This book brings together Werner's love of children's books, his love of nature and his fine art background to create a unique and beautiful volume to pore over again and again."--
