There are basically two kinds of people in this world when it comes to math; those that "get it" and those like myself that "don't get it." If you wonder down the halls of just about any middle school or high school in the country and ask random kids what they think about math the most common answer by far is "math sux." I will be honest with you and tell you that has been my standard answer since about the age of five. (Maybe not in those word, but pretty close). This is a pity, really. I think that one of the problems is that there are so many of us that fall into the category of "don't get it" that we have found very little about math that is actually fun! This little book is actually one of those rare little gems you find now and then that does actually make math fun!
Peter, the little boy who was suppose to be given to Rumplestiltskin as the menacing little guy's payment for making straw into gold, is having his tenth birthday and Rumple shows up to collect. When he is refused the brings havoc to the kingdom using his magic walking stick to multiply things that should not be multiplied, i.e. bugs, rats, mice, noses and such, and to make things vanish through multiplication such as guards, cows, pigs, chickens and such...troubles, troubles, troubles!Read more ›
