Overview

Max and his two brothers hop into a car and go looking for problems they can solve. They cruise down highway number 4 on their way to Shapeville, but they see an abandoned number along the way. Is it a 6? Is it a 9? And what's it doing on the side of the road? Once the trio reach Shapeville, there's another problem: a flood washed away all of the squares. Max and his brothers show the town that putting together two triangles will bring their shapes back together, and then they follow the residents on a trip to Count Town, where they put the missing number back in its place in the countdown to a rocket's blastoff.

Although mathematics is front and center in this follow-up to Max’s Words and Max’s Castle, the clever wordplay of the previous books remains on display as Max and his brothers set off “looking for problems” to solve. Their journey takes them to Shapeville, where Max shows storm-battered residents how to create a new town square from two triangles. From there, they soar to the stars and back, visit Count Town, and witness a rocket launch before heading home to bed (but not before counting sheep, of course). Kulikov’s visual flights of fancy will set readers’ imaginations soaring as Banks slyly introduces a bevy of math concepts. Ages 4–8. (Mar.)
