I'm torn between loving this book and wondering whether it complicates the whole issue of factoring. I love the visual, playful approach to math. I love the monsters, and the way of using the monsters to help show the factors that make up a new number. And yet... and yet the final illustrations don't help me see the way factors help make up a larger number.

I want to share with some math teachers and see what they think. So for now, no stars - still undecided.
