Mummy Math
“Mummy Math is the rough equivalent of, say, 'Harry Potter Teaches You to Be a Multiplication Wizard!' The author makes use of the ambience and occasional details of an alluring world in order to give a lesson about something else. This simple story introduces eight common geometric solids.”
--The New York Times Book Review

Amanda Bean’s Amazing Dream
“Amanda Bean loves to count anything and everything, from the books in the library to the popcorn in her snack bowl. But sometimes she just can’t count fast enough--until she has an amazing dream about free-wheeling sheep on bikes and speed knitting grandmas. Only then does Amanda realize she can count on multiplication!”

Sir Cumference and the Sword in the Stone
“Filled with riddles and puns, this story is sure to delight students with some geometry background. If your students have enjoyed the first three stories in the series, they will certainly want this one. Make sure to share these gems with your math teachers.”
--School Library Journal
