Count is a new humorous story from the critically acclaimed and best-selling author Melvin Burgess.

Brandon is a boaster - he says he is brilliant at lots of things. Then he is challenged to count up to 10 million. So Brandon starts - one, two, three...and before long, he is up to 1,000. 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....
