What a fun and creative book! It's about a student whose math teacher says that, really, everything can be seen as a math problem--and the next morning, sure enough, the poor kid wakes up and starts to see math problems EVERYWHERE! I don't want to say too much because part of the fun is seeing how and why math problems pop up in the course of a school day--from getting ready for school to history and English classes. The illustrations are quirky and fun and add to the overall enjoyment of the text. (Interestingly, I had just read another Lane Smith book "Glasses, Who Needs 'Em?" and wasn't a fan of his art so I'm glad I liked it here!) Definitely recommended for anyone who loves math--or for those who are struggling with the subject and just need a chance to laugh about it!
