A book about probability, chance, and how to figure them—real math in a book that’s fun. Watch Danny and Brian in action at school, at home, and at play, and discover for yourself that chance has a part in a surprising number of everyday situations. If the weather forecaster predicts a 60 percent chance of snow, should Danny count on a “snow day”? Has Brian bought enough chances to have a chance at winning the PTA raffle? Will Danny’s mother’s new baby be a boy or a girl? Do you wanna bet?

About the Author:

Martha Weston was the author and illustrator of two charming picture books about Tuck, as well as the illustrator of Clarion's successful Owen Foote books by Stephanie Greene. Martha Weston died in 2003.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Brian and Danny are introduced to the laws of chance through coin tossing, spinner and card games, and the weather; they even discover that whenever 23 or more people get together, chances are better than even that at least two will have the same birthday. Although the fictional component strains credibility (the two boys spend most of their waking time at home, school, and even at birthday parties talking about the laws of chance), setting a probability primer in everyday life does reduce its pedantry. A minor cavil: none of the cheery, informal drawings actually illustrates the ideas presented, missing a good opportunity to introduce charts and graphs as a help to visualization. Nonetheless, a lively introduction that may hook a budding physicist (or gambler) on the endless fascination of the vagaries of numbers. (Nonfiction. 9+) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP.
