Synopsis: From a single pea on a plate to a quadrillion peas that cover an entire town, the numbers just get bigger and bigger, in a concept book about the unlimited possibilities of counting.
From Kirkus Reviews: Illustrator Murdocca (Dinosaurs Before Dark, 1992, etc.) adds almost infinite humor to Packard's (author of the ``Choose Your Own Adventure'' series) text. Flap copy tells us that the author is responsible for the focus on ``concrete visualization,'' but it is the cartoony, multi-focus visuals that bring to life the concept of how big really big numbers like a quadrillion are. Recurring characters who will make readers laugh include the brown-spotted white dog, who measures in sniffs. The book itself measures, delightfully, in peas: ``We'll start smallwith the number 1,'' and we see one lone pea on a plate. Add a zero and arrive at ten, which Pete, the boy with the backwards baseball cap, can achieve by holding up five fingers on each hand. The addition of another zero takes readers to 100, and so on until at 100,000, there's a big pile of peas on the table, and the dog asks, ``Where's the beef?'' The pea pile grows exponentially with the addition of each zero; at 10 to the 27th power, the peas make a ball as big as the earth, which looks, from space, like one big pea. And, yes, so many peas would squash down, but ``to keep this book from getting too complicated, we imagined that all the peas stayed the same size.'' This fun, beginning math book tackles a topic that's difficult to grasp and makes it pea-sized. (Nonfiction. 5-9)-- Copyright © 2000 Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
