A classic with a twist, this number-crunching take on "The Princess and the Pea" features not just one princess, but three, not to mention four horses, five dogs, six grooms, seven gardeners, and all kinds of chances for young mathematicians to put their adding and subtracting to the test. This lively readaloud book introduces basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, and includes a 'Test Your Maths Skills' section. Rich colours, ingenious page layouts, quirky design and a playful text make this book a covetable gift for everyone who remains young at heart. Former primary school teacher Brenda Williams runs popular workshops. The book challenges the standard princess and fairytale stereotypes - it's not only the princess who can have a happy ending.
