I learned I'm *not* "as smart as a 5th grader!" I do well on the game show with its facts, but these puzzles are hard! Good brainteasers for clever kids and patient adults who can think 'laterally' as well as logically. I especially liked how the answer section is organized, first with a section of further clues, then with more text to encourage the reader to really really try, and finally the answers. ( )

Old Children's Book. Liked it as a kid, but haven't read it in years. ( )

for older kids, definitely a fun way to incorporate math into reading. I found myself having a great time figuring out the puzzles! ( )

This book doesn't have much of a story line, but it has brain teasing math. So, pull out your Math Book, no, wait, pull out your Spelling Book. The wacky teacher expects her students, and you, to add and subtract words. This hands on book will tie your brain in knots! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0590457268, Mass Market Paperback)

From the Newbery-award winning author of Holes

"Everyone take out your spelling books," said Mrs. Jewls. "It's time for arithmetic."

Sue is so excited for her first day at Wayside School. But things at Wayside are far from normal-and Sue's teacher, Mrs. Jewls, is completely wacky. She expects the students to add and subtract words! Sue has never heard of anything so ridiculous. She knows adding apples plus oranges is impossible...or is it? Anything can happen at Wayside School.
