Murderous Maths is a terrific book despite the title, it teaches a lot but will keep you interested with its way of teaching and its balanced amount of jokes. The cartoons are funny but you have to think before you understand them. Such as division, it teaches you how to master it in about 5 minutes. It also tells about signs such as approximately equals and not equal, and about factors too. I am 9 years old but I learned a lot!

I've been looking for books that will make math interesting for a while.
This series has been translated into Chinese and is very popular in China. I bought this book for my son for his seventh birthday. He loves the book. He finished the book on the day he got it. Then he borrowed my calculator to check out the tricks talked in the book and showed them to us. During the past month, he read the book over and over again.
I'm reading the book too. It introduces math concepts in an easy understanding and funny way.There many comic strips in the book. You need be able to do long chapter reading to enjoy this book. For the math part, a first grader can understand most of of it ( I haven't finished the book yet).
I'm thinking of buy other books in the series already.

...That's what my children say, EVERY time we take out the Murderous Maths books to read. They love the entertaining and humorous stories in these books, and so do I. But most importantly, the stories really DO help you to understand math concepts. I imagine these books could also be useful to adults who struggle with understanding math.

I hate any of the horrible histories or the knowledge books, even though they might have interesting facts in them,i still think they are just silly jokes and facts. The setting of each page reminds me of a FUNNY paged comic. They seem silly and boring, i couldn't sit down and waTCH A BOOK LIKE THIS, TOTALLY BORING AND NOT MY STYLE.
