“The last time we saw the king, he seemed a bit gloomy,” said Lady Di of Ameter to her husband, Sir Cumference, one evening. “His birthday is soon. Let’s give him a surprise party here at our castle to cheer him up. We could invite people from the entire countryside.”

There was much less plot to this story than most of the other stories, but it is hard to make puns with the concept of 10s, there just aren't word plays possible. But the author does show that putting your numbers into 10s makes addition easier, and leads to easier math in other ways as well. I continue to recommend this series to elementary schools and home schooling families, it provides a fun way to instill math concepts into young heads--and refresh older heads, too!

This is another fantastic author. She has tons of great math literature. This is an excellent book for place value! Love the 'Medieval' twist on this series!
