Count is a new humorous story from the critically acclaimed and bestselling author, Melvin Burgess.

Brandon is a boaster – he says he is brilliant at lots of things. Then he is challenged to count up to ten million. So Brandon starts – one, two, three ... and before long he is up to one thousand. Everyone around him is bewildered and annoyed – his friend Waris, his teachers and Miss Hexx, the head. But Brandon can’t stop counting. And then strange, impossible things start happening. The numbers are taking over everything ...

'With even pacing and a tone of whimsy, British narrator Charlie Sanderson tells the story of Brandon, a boy who boasts that he can count to 10 million and proceeds to do so. Though his family and friends have their doubts because he rarely follows through on his claims, he keeps right on counting. Soon he becomes a celebrity, and his manager, a self-centered teacher, takes control of his life as the final number of 10 million draws closer. Sanderson succeeds in creating a unique experience for listeners as the counting breaks in throughout the story. Listeners will cheer Brandon on as he works toward his goal while the pressure and fame that have turned his life upside down continue to build.'
