From the Inside Flap:

Almost everyone remembers doing story problems in school. But as best-selling author Carol Lynn Pearson (A Stranger for Christmas) demonstrates, those story problems don't end with a diploma. In fact, the equations big boys and girls face are often the most challenging--and the most rewarding. Pearson's clever tale and Kathleen Peterson's evocative pastels will inspire you to return to the classroom for a timely lesson.

Readers of all ages will be drawn to this first of a series of titles by modern writers using the classic fable form.

From the Back Cover:
