Abstract:

Summary: When the teacher tells her class that they can think of almost everything as a math problem, one student acquires a math anxiety which becomes a real curse. From the inventive team that brought you The Stinky Cheese Man, a tale of a girl in the relentless grip of math-mania. What if you think of everything as a math problem--and you spend your morning tabulating your teeth and calculating your corn flakes? You've got the math curse, that's what! Let Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith take you on an adventure to infinity and back. Full color.
