This review is from: The Multiplying Menace Divides (Math Adventures) (Paperback)
I think it's rather brilliant of this author to write entertaining books about math for small children. The illustrations are cute but feel a bit amateurish. I do think that children would love them. The story is cute. Though it feels a bit pedantic, I liked it.
