K-Gr. 2. The lively mall setting will draw children to this Murphy's MathStart series entry, which deals with addition strategies, as Andriani's lively line-and-watercolor illustrations depict kids who hate shopping (like glowering Brandon) and those who love it (like Brandon's sister, Brooke). The 100th person to enter Parkside Mall will get lots of promotional gifts, and four kids from Wilson Elementary School's chess club are on hand to count up the shoppers and add the numbers together.^B Tension mounts as the numbers get closer to 100, and the unexpected winning shopper gets all the gifts. The counters use a variety of addition strategies and activities, as always, Murphy adds greatly to the math lesson by making it seem a part of daily life. Suggestions for follow-up activities, both complex and easy, and a brief bibliography are appended. Hazel Rochman
