I was curious about this series to see if it really was educational in a way that engages kids. My two or three older kids (ages 3-9) have certainly picked this up repeatedly and looked at it, and even read parts of it. When I read through it to see why they kept checking it out, but never stuck with it for very long, I think I figured it out.

(Informational) This book really brings math to life! It introduces the concepts as charters and personifies them. Each character has a story that teaches you about that particular math concept. I could see my students really enjoying this book!
Interesting, gives facts, and is a wonderful guide through Math, Algebra and Theory description of elements of Math and their uses..from their respective perspectives. Funny and {I would} well recremend it to all ages.

Everyone knows i hate math but this book was actually very useful! It gave so much information in such a simplified easy understanding way.The book defines each aspect of the type of math then gives examples and remembering tools.It also gives fun graphic pictures for each one!
Basically dumbed down kids' encyclopedias with irrelevant kawaii-style illustrations. Might be useful in a situation where relying on a variety of books/explanations helps bring a difficult point home, but not a very good stand-alone series.

Uses humor and fun to help explain math concepts. Somethings still seemed a bit difficult to understand, but may be me.
