Everybody Counts
Alle sammen teller

Everybody Counts is a seek-and-find book, a counting book, and a picture book about humanity. We are counting people, from 0 to 7,5 billion. All the people belong to groups, e.g. a family, a flea market or an airport. We start with a boy and his family, and all the groups are related to them. Many people appear in different groups and situations, and throughout the book numerous narratives are created. The book provides a playful view of the many connections and coincidences in our lives. Every single one of us has a unique story, but we are all part of the same group – the world.

Everybody Counts stands out within its genre. It can be read time and again, and each time we discover something new. We might recognise the thoughts of others, and maybe even recognise ourselves in the characters.’
