From the Inside Flap:

"This lively story reads like a folktale with a scientific twist. . . . Debon's paintings, in pleasing earth tones and primary colors, reflect the book's humor and adventure."
-School Library Journal

"Children will enjoy both the satisfying story and the distinctive paintings, which are at their dramatic best as the wagon races down the road."
-Booklist

Visually stunning and intellectually stimulating, this sixth book in the Warlord's Series encourages young children to use their imaginations and mathematics to find the best solution for the characters' dilemmas.

The warlord's presence is requested at the emperor's banquet in just two weeks, but he is sixteen days away by horseback. Faced with a situation that threatens the warlord's honor, Chuan and his friend Jing Jing must reach him in time to assure the warlord's punctuality. Using their math skills, ingenuity, and the wind, the children devise a sailing cart and reach his camp two days ahead of the emperor's messenger. They arrive just in time to deliver the invitation and save the warlord from dishonor.

Like each book in the series, The Warlord's Messengers includes instructions for a math-related craft. Following Chuan and Jing Jing's sailing adventures, kids are encouraged to make their own windsock to measure wind speed.
