Horn Book Review

Alliterative setups (""No one can balance vegetables like Bessie"") lead into zany math problems (""But today, when she tries to balance 8 beets, 3 fall!""), illustrated with quirky collagelike compositions of retro cut-outs, photo-blurred backgrounds, and naively drawn human figures. The difficulty level is appropriate and consistent, enhanced by the buoyant tone. Answers and further questions appear at the back. (c) Copyright 2010.
