I LOVE anything by children’s author Tara Lazar. Anything.
She has an innate ability to weave her words into a humorous tale that results in laughter by both children and adults. That my friends takes talent!
Her latest creation is a pun filled tome that answers the life-long question of why 7 Ate 9. Written in film noir style, you follow Private “I” as he tries to discover the truth behind 9’s disappearance. Illustrator Ross MacDonald added to the fun of this book by playing along with the puns in his illustrations. His drawings evoke a 1930’s-1940’s feel with rotary phones, vintage clothing and period storefronts. This book is loaded with math puns and fun word-play.
As a former teacher, I can see so many used for this book in the classroom. Math puns and number fun aside, it is packed with figurative language, idioms, strong verbs, plot, etc…
This book is a MUST HAVE!! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
Even the book trailer is fabulously created!
