As the ELL teacher of at least one boy who likes math, I thought this would be a great book. It was even better than I thought as it is also a music book about the first rock band...

Pythagoras is really into music and wants to play in an upcoming contest, but he neglects his work to help his cousins fix their instruments to be tuned together which had never been done before. On the way to the contest, he breaks his pipes, but his cousins who stood in order to height did a magnificent job and Pythagoras decided to name his rock band Ratios in honor of the 5 cousins whose names conveniently started with R A T I and O. You'll have to read it for yourself to figure out the rock band. ( )
