A childrens librarian discusses Math Attack! by Joan Horton.
“Author Joan Horton’s rhyming narrative sets a hilariously hyperbolic scene . . . . An ingenious riff on the rigors of multiplication, the text gains even more energy from Kyrsten Brooker’s dynamic oil paint and collage illustrations.” —Family Fun Magazine
“The high-energy artwork will entertain.” —Publishers Weekly “The rhyming text is well cadenced, with carefully chosen words that flow easily. Rich paint and collage illustrations combine textures and colors with numbers spilling over the pages.” —School Library Journal“The creative juxtaposition of different textures and off-kilter picture components gives a vivid sense of the story’s chaotic events. Absurd and amusing.” —Booklist “Take a look at the inside front and back covers for something extra and educational.” —Infodad.com
JOAN HORTON’s Halloween Hoots and Howls was praised as “deliciously silly” by School Library Journal. She lives in Glastonbury, Connecticut. KYRSTEN BROOKER’s many popular picture books include The Prince Won’t Go to Bed! by Dayle Ann Dodds, which a starred School Library Journal review hailed as “laugh-out-loud funny.” She lives in Edmonton, Canada.
