Murderous Maths: The Brain-Bending Basics

Learn maths and let out your inner rebel! From the Horrible camp (where else?) this is maths gone wickedly funny. And nuttier than a jar of Sunpat. Meet a crew of yucky villains who would happily slit your throat, but are much too busy making you die of laughter. Killer sums, prime suspects, sneaky signs. Maths according to Professor Fiendish, Chainsaw Charlie and the gang. All linked to the new curriculum, with funny cartoons right through by comic genius Philip Reeve. (Yes, he rates this book so much he took time out from writing his own prize-winning fiction to do funny pictures for it.)
