Children's LiteratureOne day the Math Monsters—Addison, Split, Multiplex and Mina—get a surprise. Big Bill has delivered a box to their castle. After much guessing, the Monsters discover a computer inside.

Entertaining and amusing, this book is an excellent way to introduce children to the world's most popular electronic tool.

The "Math Monsters" series of books is designed to meet and support NCTM Standards for Pre-K-2 mathematics content and process instruction. 2004, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 5 up.
