Editorial Reviews

Review

“Subplots involving Wilson's science fair project and the disappearance of one of little brother Kipper's beloved beanbag-animal companions add humor and pathos, respectively--all captured in Karas's warm pencil sketches… whether math-challenged or math whizzes, readers will look forward to the further adventures of the sympathetic Wilson.” ―Horn Book Magazine

More About the Author

Claudia Mills is the author of over 50 books for young readers. To write her books she draws on childhood memories of growing up in New Jersey as well as funny stories her two sons brought home from elementary school and middle school as they grew up in Colorado. She loves to visit schools, where she is always on the prowl for material that can make its way into a chapter book or middle grade novel.

Claudia is also a professor of philosophy at the University of Colorado at Boulder, specializing in ethics and political philosophy, who has published many articles on philosophical and ethical themes in children's literature, including essays on the work of Maud Hart Lovelace, Eleanor Estes, Betty MacDonald, Louisa May Alcott, and Rosamond du Jardin.

All of Claudia's books have been written between 5 and 7 in the morning, while drinking Swiss Miss hot chocolate at her cozy home near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. She likes to write for an hour every day, watching little bits of daily writing grow into big piles of published books to share with children everywhere.

"Fractions = Trouble"
Written by Claudia Mills
Illustrated by G. Brian Karas
(Farrar Straus Giroux, 2011)
---------------------------------------------------
The charming sequel to Claudia Mills' "7 x 9 = Trouble," also about a nice third-grader named Wilson Williams who thinks he's bad at math and freaks out about upcoming tests even though he winds up doing just fine. In this book, his parents send him to see a math tutor, and Wilson gets doubly freaked out since he thinks his friends will make fun of him if they find out. As with the first book this paints a nice picture of family life (with a realistic smidge of sibling rivalry) and also shows how a little bit of hard work can help you solve problems, and the value of getting perspective on the things that challenge us and at first seem so insurmountable. Great book to help younger readers face academic worries -- also, the math itself is not very dense or intimidating and doesn't get in the way of a good story. Recommended.

My 8 year old, somewhat reluctant reader, really enjoyed this book. (And he isn't a math whiz either.) He thought it was funny, and continually updated me on the plot as he read. So not only did it keep him engaged, it snuck in some math concepts at the same time. I will definitely be getting him more books for him from Claudia Mills!

Good book for my middle school intensive math classroom! When students finish early, they can read. With this book they can read about a subject that many constantly struggle with.

Bought this book as part of a reading assignment for my daughter's math class. She loved it. Cute concept of introducing fractions.
