Sir Fracton and Lady Di of Ameter go to the kingdom of Fracton and learn all about fractions by participating in their annual festival. The duo learn about numerators, denominators, and how to compare fractions all while helping the Earl of Fracton solve the mystery as to who is stealing from his people. Although this seems to be a rather juvenile picture book, the content would be a great refresher for middle grades students talking about comparing fractions with different denominators. This book talks through some common misconceptions all while entertaining the audience with a story of mischief and medieval fun. ( )

Sir Cumference and Lady Di of Ameter visit their friend, the earl of Fracton at the Fracton Faire. As they are shopping, the merchants realized that they are missing some product. Every merchant at the faire was missing some of their goods. They realize that the goods were in fact stolen. Sir Cumference, Lady Di, and the Earl of Fracton decided to use fraction number to catch the thieves. I would implement this book in my classroom as and introduction to fractions. ( )

The Fracton Faire is a fun town till things start going missing. They come up with different fractions to get their stolen goods back. I gave this book a 5 star because the book has great details and illustrations that are easy for the students to follow along. Also its a fun way to get the students to learn about fractions. ( )

The Fracton Faire is in town, and everyone is having a great time. When things start to go missing, the townspeople realize that there is a thief among them and with fractions they come up with a way to get the stolen goods back. I give this book 5-stars because it goes into great detail about what a fraction is. It also teaches fractions in a fun way so your students will be engaged by the story and learn an important lesson at the same time. ( )

Do your kids love a mystery? Do they want to solve the book before it's done? Do they love fractions? Okay, they don't love fractions, but they will love them in this book. The book breaks them down clearly and easily for kids. I would strongly recommend this book. It's in my library for sure. ( )
