Count on “Absolutely One Thing” for a singularly funny look at simple math as encountered by Charlie and Lola.
Sometimes, as a treat, Mom takes Charlie and Lola to the store and says they may choose “one thing. “”One thing to share?” Lola asks. No, it s one thing “each, “explains Charlie, or two actual things “between two. “Lola is nine minutes late getting ready, and on the way, there are ladybugs and birds to count and maybe a squillion leaves on a tree. At the store, Lola says she will choose “three “things, or possibly” two. “”How about “no “things?” asks Mom. With Lola hilariously bending everyday numbers to her will, the math goes down easy in this charming picture book loaded with visual appeal.”
