Why does elf + elf = fool? How many meals will Miss Mush, the lunch teacher, have to cook for the food to taste as bad as it smells? These Sideways Arithmetic problems may look puzzling at first, but you can use real maths to solve them, and the answers are perfectly logical. There are lots of clues and hints; plus, all the answers are in the back of the book. Best of all, all the kids you read about in Sideways Stories from Wayside School are here to help you! Try solving these, and more than fifty other maths brainteasers, along with the kids from Mrs. Jewls' class. You'll learn alot about maths but you'll be laughing too much to notice!

I thought the book was really fuuny and the auther had a big imagination. I liked how the kids could be animals at a point and then be apples and then be kids again.

The book was a really good fantasy and I really enjoyed it. o liked it so much I read it 3 more times. I would recamend this book to anyone who enjoy's a good lagh while reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Logic challenge! Dec 4 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a wonderful extra for a bright and mathematically-minded kid. It's silly, it's fun, and it hones the logic circuits. It is actually a cleverly disguised introduction to the concept of mathematical variables. Some of the puzzles are complex enough to engage most adults as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was an okay book May 19 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'd give this three and a half, but Amazon doesn't offer that. It was funny and weird, but I wanted more story and less math problems (I don't really like math). All in all, it was okay. Try it if you like math and wacky problems, but otherwise don't bother.
