A well deserved 4 stars for this one. A really special story, and I like the interesting Math facts before the chapters. The only thing keeping this book from getting a 5 star rating from me is that, sometimes it just seems to be going round and round, not getting anywhere not going anywhere. But other than that, a very well written story.

Oh dear! The book held such promise on the back cover, but I'm afraid once I put it down, I just couldn't pick it up again. After 3 months in hibernation, it has never appealed as much as anything else on offer. I just moved it to my shelf labelled "gave up without finishing". There it shall sit with a small number of other books I just couldn't muster up enthusiasm for after page 50 or so.

This book was OK, but one got the impression that it wasn't really getting anywhere, so I wouldn't say it's a must-read.

It’s a good children's book, I quite enjoyed the maths bits in the beginning of each chapter. Just a decent book with nothing too spectacular about it.
