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.
