Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
This first-rate blend of fact and fiction is based on Children's Television Workshop's "SQUARE ONE TV" programs in which Mathnetters George Frankly and Kate Monday crack jokes and solve mysteries by the numbers: in #3, The Case of the Willing Parrot, for example, Fibonacci numbers are introduced.
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Fatty Tissue, a vaudeville comedian and movie star, left his estate to his parrot, Louie. Louie's guardian is 13 year old Walter Treppling. With the help of the wisecracking parrot, Walter and the Mathnet detectives solve the mystery of Fatty's missing millions. The solution requires an understanding of the concept of scale models and Fibonacci numbers, both of which are engagingly explained in the text. Bad puns abound, keeping the fun alive.
