I had great hopes that this book would be a wonderful teaching aid for kids who either don't like or are having trouble with math. But it really teaches nothing new. *Spoiler Alert* One of the math-whiz student-cats decides to help a classmate cat who is having trouble with math. Quickly he realizes that helping the less learned cat count with cars makes it all great. They are now equally good at math, and the teacher is flabbergasted. "Wow!" says Mr. G. "I am impressed." "Pete helped me by making math fun!" Tom says. And thus the teacher now decides the whole class can learn from Pete's wonderful idea of counting with cars.

Sorry, the idea is absurd. Teachers have used this method for years. And it's not quite as easy as counting cars, blocks, or tigers to make a classmate hoot and holler over math.

And I'm sorry to add to my unhappiness with the book, but the illustrations of cats are a bit scary.

(I'm not usually a negative reviewer, but this just didn't cut it for me.)
