Max is on an adventure to solve problems, math problems that is! Max enlists the help of his brother Ben to join him on his math adventure. They ride around town searching for problems. They learn that in the town of Shapeville the mayor is searching for the town square because a storm blew the shapes all over town. They help solve the problem by putting the shapes back together to make stop signs and a kite. After the kite was put together it swept them away to space. They had to connect the stars in order to get back to Shapeville. When they arrive Max and Ben must help find the numbers to count down, and they do. After they return home from their big math adventure. The illustrations are bright and vivid and composed of math elements such as numbers, shapes, and lines. This book provides great visualization of connections between math concepts. It not only depicts connects but motivates the reader to be a problem solver. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374348758, Hardcover)

Max and his two brothers hop into a car and go looking for problems they can solve. They cruise down highway number 4 on their way to Shapeville, but they see an abandoned number along the way. Is it a 6? Is it a 9? And what's it doing on the side of the road? Once the trio reach Shapeville, there's another problem: a flood washed away all of the squares. Max and his brothers show the town that putting together two triangles will bring their shapes back together, and then they follow the residents on a trip to Count Town, where they put the missing number back in its place in the countdown to a rocket's blastoff.
