Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-``It's strange. These come in many different sizes but they are always exactly one foot long.'' What's the answer? You figure it out by doing the following problem using your calculator: 53 x 40 x 5 + 9 x 5=? The mathematical answer is 53045. But how does that help solve the riddle? To find the answer, turn your calculator upside down and you will see the word ``shoes.'' There are 45 similar entries and many are so unexpected that youngsters will shout with laughter. Once they try the first one, they'll be hooked and won't rest until they've worked out every one. Adler begins with an excellent introduction on how to play the calculator riddle game and ends with a page of answers. Fisher's black-and-white cartoon illustrations provide marvelous humor. A worthwhile addition by any calculation.-Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL
