Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
What a terrific idea this is-a math adventure set in the days of knights and chivalry! But it's cleverer in conceptualization than execution. Sir Cumference's and Lady Di's mathematical plans work fine, with a little help from young Radius. But the Arthurian backdrop, with names such as Lancelot and Gawain, detracts from the more interesting math fantasy tale. An invented castle-and-moat setting would have sufficed-as it is young readers are left with the impression that King Arthur's court of legend was peopled with folks called Geo of Metry and Lady Di of Ameter.

This book is great. It imparts math concepts and yet is a good tale as well. Entertained both me and my 7 year old daugher. I'm a math specialist and use this in my work.

How many math books can teach you something in a lighthearted way and have you remember it through repitition? Not many! But this one can! My eight year old even enjoys reading it! Wonderful math book!
