Read full description of the books:
My intent with this site is not to give reviews. But it is really difficult to stick to principle when confronted with something this bad. Now, I liked the original Sir Cumference book. I am not opposed to trying to mix mirth with math. But, in place of mirth, this book has a torturous plot designed only to allow the main character to talk about "a cute" angle (get it?), and instead of math, there's... I don't know, it's like some backwards vocabulary lesson, whereby I'm supposed to remember the word for parallel lines because a "King" named, coincidentally, Lell, happens to own two dragons whose tails extend in the same direction over a moat - are you buying this?
There is actually something noteworthy here, in that it seems to give an indication of what the author considers mathematics to be, namely memorizing things that don't make any sense. I'm not holding her personally responsible, but I object. I don't consider any of the "facts" encountered herein to augment the reader's knowledge of mathematics. The approach to angle measure is just, well, sort of orthogonal to the concept of measuring angles, and at any rate I don't need a protractor to tell me when an angle is "Small".

Cindy graduated with a BA in International Studies from Willamette University and earned an MA from Stanford University. She has taught all grades in elementary school as well as high school.
Cindy began writing books in 1994. She had used math literature with her own classes in the early 1990’s and liked the way students responded to it. She wanted to use more of these books but found there were not many available so she started writing some of her own. Her books are published by Charlesbridge, Henry Holt, and Scholastic. She usually writes one book a year.
When she is not teaching or writing, Cindy enjoys spending time with her family. She has been married to her husband, Bruce, for over 30 years. Their older son, Tim, is a medical doctor working in orthopedic research. Their younger son, Seth, is a college student training to become a firefighter. Cindy and Bruce own three dogs; two Dalmatians and a Gordon Setter. Cindy loves to travel, bike ride, and swim. She and her family are Christians who are active in their local church.
