Book Reviews
“Again and again, math, logic, and numbers get Lexie and Lamar out of sticky situations....The math will be enough to draw some readers in while the action-packed story will keep the math-averse reading - and perhaps occasionally flexing their math muscles too. This playful math series is overall a valuable addition to the chapter-book shelf.”
“LaRochelle shrewdly integrates the numerical puzzles (which involve patterns, probability, measuring systems, and symmetry) into his madcap plot, and the playful competition between the math whiz kids further energizes the story.”

Lamar and Lexie head off on another math-related adventure to help their space alien friend Fooz when her planet is invaded by penguins. These penguins may look adorable, but the mere sight of one is enough to turn the planet's inhabitants to stone. In order to save the planet, Lamar and Lexie must solve a series of puzzles that require reading map coordinates, interpreting Roman Numerals, and measuring time. Are Lexie and Lamar—and you—up to the challenge?
