Story by John Patrick F. Solano

"Who needs rulers, when young Matmat can use the length of his open hand to measure and count? Youngsters will relish counting along with Matmat as he sets about measuring his family, one dangkal at a time!"
A dangkal is a Filipino term that refers to the measured length of an open hand, from the tip of the pinky finger to the tip of the thumb. It was such a fun concept to work with! I think it made this counting book more interesting to work on and I had fun drawing all of Matmat's hands in different scenes.
