Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Taking care of five little ducks is hard work for a little boy, but when each duck brings home a friend, it's double the ducks and double the work. This charming story is the latest in the "MathStart" series that shows children how they use math in everyday life. In this title, readers learn how to double numbers, a first step towards addition and multiplication. The brightly colored pictures surround the simple text, which is limited to three sentences per page. The author is a visual learning specialist with a strong background in design and art education. This is evident in the way he makes math concepts fun and meaningful for the youngest readers. Simple enough for preschoolers, this is a great addition to the other titles in the series that include Just Enough Carrots and A Pair of Socks. 2003, HarperCollins Publishers,

Kirkus Reviews
King-Smith’s (Chewing the Cud, p. 1312, etc.) animal tales usually leap over the Atlantic with ease, but not this time. Poking affectionate fun at Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, the author looks at their relationship through the eyes of Titus, one of the Queen’s ten corgis. Never referring to his royal mistress as anything other than "the servant," Titus learns proper behavior from his mum ("Our servant she may be, but it’s important to treat servants right if you want them to look after you well"), earns a place on the Queen’s lap after nabbing a jewel thief, then on her very bed after heading off a flood (Philip falls asleep in his tub, leaving the taps on), and a cigarette-caused fire. In frequent hatched-ink sketches, Eastwood mingles recognizable Royals with stubby, confident-looking canines. American readers will admire Titus for his courage and cleverness, but the lèse-majesté humor of repeatedly catching Philip in undignified circumstances or listening to him and "Madge" (short for "Majesty") bicker over the domestic menagerie doesn’t carry the same resonance on this side of the pond. A near-miss. (Fiction. 9-11)
