Opis produktu

The world would be a better place without math or messy roommates. At least that’:s what Ella Hunter believes. Life is about keeping order and avoiding long division fractions or really anything with an equal sign.As the end of the school year approaches the fifthgrade teachers at Victor Waldo Elementary conclude there’:s not enough time to complete a new math unit before summer break. Great news for mathphobic Ella right?Wrong! The teachers decide instead to have their students host the firstever Math Fair. And the fair project is worth two major math grades.Add in one dead possum plus two horrible roommates who come to stay while their house is being renovated and you have an equation for disaster. Ella is headed for summer school and math tutoring for sure. Can she stop her troubles from multiplying before it’:s too late?Sky Pony Press with our Good Books Racehorse and Arcade imprints is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers—:picture books for small children chapter books books for middle grade readers and novels for young adults. Our list includes bestsellers for children who love to play Minecraft: stories told with LEGO bricks: books that teach lessons about tolerance patience and the environment and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.Taryn Souders has a background in math education and is passionate about keeping math fun for kids. She is the author of Wholey Cow!: Fractions Are Fun.Souders has a pretty good feel for middle (or nearly) school academic and social interactions....Diverting and frequently funny.&mdash:Kirkus ReviewsMath fans and math phobes alike will gobble this one up. Math has never been more tasty as Souders delivers a story as delicious as a BananaCocoChocoLoco ice cream treat. —:Claudia Mills author of 7 x 9 = Trouble! and Annika Riz Math WhizElla is kind charming and believably flawed. Souders has created a pitchperfect story for reluctant readers—:and reluctant math students.”: —:Courtney Sheinmel author of the Stella Batts seriesThe next time I hear someone say Math has nothing to do with real life I am going to tell them to read Dead Possums Are Fair Game. In this hysterically funny fastmoving and often poignant novel Souders has a great time showing us that perfection isn’:t always necessary and that sometimes we can’:t control our circumstances but we can always control our reactions even when math is involved. So what does a dead opossum a math phobic a quirky aunt and a cast of lovable friends add up to? A great story told with heart. And as a selfadmitted nonmath person I have to say that Souders made math fun for me. Bravo. —:Joyce Magnin author of Cake: Love Chickens and a Taste of Peculiar and Carrying MasonSouders has a pretty good feel for middl
