Two is best friends with One. Whenever they’d get the chance, they’d dance. She’d sing and snap. He’d tappity-tap. What a pair they made. At the end of each day, they’d always say, “ONE, TWO, I’ll count on you, ’til the end, we’ll be best friends.” Until Three jumps in between them …

Suddenly, One only wants to play with Three. “ONE, THREE, odds we’ll be,” they chant. Two feels left out. But what can she do?

Another character-building counting book by Otoshi, “Two” is a powerful story of friendship, loss, letting go, and self-discovery.

Otoshi is an award-winning writer and illustrator living in the Bay Area. Books she’s written and illustrated include: “What Emily Saw,” “Simon & the Sock Monster,” “One” (winner of 10 nationwide awards), and her upcoming “bookZero.” Books she has illustrated only include: “Marcello the Movie Mouse,” “The Saddest Little Robot,” and “Maneki Neko: The Tale of the Beckoning Cat.”
