it was amazing

This was a very clever and fun book. The math kept my mind thinking and I was very surprised how significantly the number rose just by doubling it. This was a very fun and witty book to read.

Teaching Application:
I would love to make this book a part of a math lesson. With the length of these numbers you can make this lesson extend further up then elementary school. I would have the students compose a spreadsheet half way through the book to predict the out come. I would then have them finish the book to check their answers.
