Math Puzzlers in Classic Poems

poeIs this poetry? Math? A brainteaser? Yes! The poet J. Patrick Lewis has reimagined classic poems—such as Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” and Langston Hughes’s “April Rain Song”—and added a dash of math. Between the silly parodies and the wonderfully wacky art, kids will have so much fun figuring out the puzzles, they won’t guess they’re learning! This funny book is a treat for fans of words and numbers alike.
