By Julia Johnson
'Humpy Grumpy Camel first appeared on the scene more than a decade ago with a cameo appearance in Julia Johnson's A is for Arabia, and now he's famous! In One Humpy Grumpy Camel he appears with a whole new cast of characters - five silly
billy goats, eight baby scorpions and nine busy beetles, 13 wise old men and 14 dancing girls, and many more characters - all of whom make counting fun for every child. Told in verse, the book is illustrated with watercolor images of Arabian life from sunrise to sunset - the leafy palm trees and desert foxes, the incense burners and glowing lanterns.
