Did you ever wake up and all you see are problems—specifically, math problems? You have 10 things to do, but only 30 minutes until your bus leaves; is there enough time? You have 3 shirts and 2 pairs of pants; can you make 1 good outfit? By adding 1 Lane Smith to 1 Jon Scieszka (the same formula used for The Stinky Cheese Man, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! and Cowboy and Octopus) you get this gem for readers equal to or greater than 6, in which a young student suddenly finds that everything in her life has become a math problem. How does she break this curse? Do the math and find out.
