## Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A collection of funny, corny, and sometimes challenging riddles and rhymes based on math."

School Library Journal

Children's Literature
What is a math teacher's favorite game? Divide and seek. Add the number of wheels on a bus plus the number of arms on an octopus plus a lot more crazy things and you get some strange math teacher-all illustrated in cartoon whimsy by Regan Dunnick. This silly book will delight young math whizzes and make math practice a bit more tolerable for the less-than-whizzes. Every page is filled with riddles that enable children to practice adding, subtracting, counting money, skip counting and solving problems: "If Mr. and Ms. Sweet-za only shared with Pete and Lisa, what fraction of the pizza would each get to eat-za? One-fourth. If Mr. and Ms. Sweet-za refused to share their pizza, what fraction of the pizza would each of them eat-za? One-half." The biggest disadvantage is that the answers are red-lettered just below the riddles-you might want to have a sticky note handy to cover up the answers so readers a chance to figure them out first. Riddle-iculous is perfect for extra credit or extra practice in the classroom and fun at home as well. 2003, Albert Whitman, Ages 5 to 10.
