Wegman has drafted his weimaraner family into a bona fide cottage industry. In these witty sequels to A,B,C, man and dogs efficiently present seven geometric figures and the numbers one through 10. Both eight-inch-square books are printed on heavy cardboard stock, encouraging pre-readers but not, of course, ruling out older Wegman enthusiasts. In the first volume, the weimaraners balance wooden blocks on their heads and muzzles (under notations for "semicircle," "arch," etc.), then pose with objects representative of each concept (e.g., a rectangular canvas, a sheriff's star). The photographic style is more portraiture than panorama, although "triangle" pictures a dog in a triangular-sailed boat. In 1,2,3, as in A,B,C, Wegman photographs the dogs as they lie on a white ground, positioned in the shape of each number; these "numerals" appear in the margins or corners of each spread. Larger images-a dachshund's-eye view of seven weimaraner paws; an achingly sweet close-up of 10 sleeping puppies-encourage readers to point and count. Wegman's presentation is solid and elegantly simple, with the photos presented either as centered insets or as full-bleed images; he has gone from the lavishness of his Fay's Fairy Tales to a style that eliminates all but the essentials. All ages.

PreS?Through Wegman's spectacular full-color photographs, well-trained Weimaraners "Fay and family show off their basic shapes." The left side of each double-page spread contains a single word with a photo of the dog balancing a small wooden block in the featured shape on her nose. The right page then expands the concept by involving Fay in a larger version of that shape, often humorously. For example, the yellow semicircle balanced on her nose on the left is extended to become the "pup" tent... read more
