The Monster Who Did My Math

Danny Schnitzlein

A math-phobic boy faces another dreaded evening of multiplication when a monster suddenly appears in his room and offers him a deal he cannot refuse.

After a quick signature on a contract, the boy's problems are solved, and his homework is ready to turn in the next day. At first, everything adds up perfectly. But when the boy's math knowledge is tested at school, his troubles begin to multiply. What did the fine print on that contract read?

"In paragraph seven of clause ninety-three,
"If you don't learn anything, do not blame me!"

When the bill comes due, will our hero have the money--and the math skills--to subtract that wicked monster from his life once and for all?

Praise for this book

"Mayer's vibrant, computer-generated illustrations, replete with gigantic otherworldly grins and mortal eyes stretched tall with fear, will appeal to fans of afternoon cartoons. Outlandish shadows convey the cautionary nature of the tale, while amusing details keep the mood perpetually fun. Narrated in humorous verse, this 'tale of mathematical mayhem' will provide an entertaining addition to math classes and a useful warm-up to tutoring sessions with less-than-enthusiastic students."--School Library Journal
