Max can count to 10 no problem. He can also count from 20 to 100.

But according to Max the numbers between 10 and 20 are:

ten one

ten two

ten three

ten four

ten five

ten six

ten seven

ten eight

ten nine

And to be honest I can't fault the logic. Can anyone tell me why the numbers between 10 and twenty were singled out for their own strange names?
