4.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate goal of Professor Fiendish 12 Mar 2007
a book of his very own!

If you have read the regular 'Murderous Maths' (MM) series of books, you will be aware of the way in which KJARTAN POSKITT puts knowledge across, in a humorous way. This book is no exception, and is dedicated to one of the key MM characters.

'So what have I got lined up for you, heh?
If you've read the 'Murderous Maths' books then you'll have already seen how my contributions bring a badly needed splash of style, wit and genius to the world of publishing.
It was only a matter of time before the MM Organization 'begged' me to produce this modest little offering.....

There are loads of my favourite teasers and puzzles in here and you'll also find I was kind enough to let, ..... lesser MM stars appear occasionally....

Large paperback format - the colourful, humorous cover opens to 100 pages, littered with black and white illustrations/cartoons plus amazing activities and fantastic fact files throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great puzzles for kids and adults alike! 10 Dec 2013
By Beth
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had this as a child and loved it then, though at the time I couldn't solve most of the more difficult problems. I bought this copy to use in an after school maths club with Y6 children and they loved it too. Some of them needed a lot of guidance as to how to solve the problems but the style of the book helped keep them engaged.
