Three friends balance counting and fun in this silly Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss and illustrated by Roy McKie. When a lion, a dog, and a tiger meet up, they soon discover that they can each do different things while balancing apples on their heads. Whether drinking milk, jumping rope, or roller-skating, they can do a lot with ten apples up on top! But watch out, she has a mop! She'll knock those apples from up on top. Seuss's apple-balancing characters will have youngsters reading, counting, and giggling! Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.  "A hilarious story in rhyme about a number of animals who could carry 10 apples on their heads."-- Elementary English.
