"Monster Number was grossly overweight and had a shaggy body like a mammoth. In the beginning, Monster number could not walk very well and swayed a little, tottering, and falling. But he was trained for detecting and killing by my father.
After a few days, we attacked Math City. Math City was bombarded, the doors and the walls shaking while the dark shade of the Monster Number came down, covering the city. Monster Number threw big stones at Math City, one after another, and a like repulsive ghoul crashed through any barrier. And then some horrible explosions began.
The Monster Number entered the city, and we followed him. He smashed a lot of numbers as he put down his steps on the earth. My father tried to feed One numbers to the Monster Number, and he gradually became bigger and bigger. But eventually he became too obese, and couldn't breathe easily. He fell down.
Monster Number crept down, but he couldn't continue any more. My father furiously ordered him back to fight but the Monster Number groaned, "I can't carry this giant body." And so the Monster number only could conquer half of the city."
I was contacted, by the author, to review this book. In the beginning I was unsure what to expect. However, as I dove further into the book I was pleasantly surprised. The characters all have such personality and the story line really does have plenty to teach. If you are looking for a quick read that also stimulates the mind- this would be a book to check out.
