Product Description


"Subplots involving Wilson’s science fair project and the disappearance of one of little brother Kipper’s beloved beanbag-animal companions add humor and pathos, respectively—all captured in Karas’s warm pencil sketches… whether math-challenged or math whizzes, readers will look forward to the further adventures of the sympathetic Wilson.” -- Horn Book Magazine

Good book for kids who are facing new academic challenges Feb. 29 2012
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"Fractions = Trouble"
Written by Claudia Mills
Illustrated by G. Brian Karas
(Farrar Straus Giroux, 2011)
The charming sequel to Claudia Mills' "7 x 9 = Trouble," also about a nice third-grader named Wilson Williams who thinks he's bad at math and freaks out about upcoming tests even though he winds up doing just fine. In this book, his parents send him to see a math tutor, and Wilson gets doubly freaked out since he thinks his friends will make fun of him if they find out. As with the first book this paints a nice picture of family life (with a realistic smidge of sibling rivalry) and also shows how a little bit of hard work can help you solve problems, and the value of getting perspective on the things that challenge us and at first seem so insurmountable. Great book to help younger readers face academic worries -- also, the math itself is not very dense or intimidating and doesn't get in the way of a good story. Recommended.

Good book for my middle school intensive math classroom! When students finish early, they can read. With this book they can read about a subject that many constantly struggle with.

This book did not meet expectations. Jan. 4 2013
By Barnard Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was advertised as a math book with help understanding fractions.

Instead, it was a story with two or three references to use of fractions.
