"Brilliant ..." Julie Porter, Bookworm Reviews

"We must teach mathematics from different points of view and different perspectives, as Tom has done in this collection of stories." -- Sandra Uve, Author "SuperMujeres, SuperInventoras," from her Foreword

"Wonderful reads ... an invaluable addition to any library. These stories represent the missing link between math entertainment and education that young learners have long needed." -- Diane Donovan, Editor, Bookwatch
