I bought this for my son after attending a talk given by the author

My son is 7 and while some reviewers have mentioned it as being more suitable for older children he hasn't put it down

So much so that one night I thought I would have to unscrew his lightbulb to stop him sneakily keep reading it after bedtime - I imagine if I did that he'd just use his torch and keep reading under the covers!

As someone who grew up watching Johny Ball it is good to see someone writing with such passion and humour for what can be seen -wrongly-as a dry subject

Theres lots of funny people in this book doing maths tricks and magic. The Evil Gollarks keep turning up to try and invade Earth and find it's a really scary place! The Greeks were dying of plague until Murderous Maths shows them how to double a cube which they couldn't do. And you find out how to make your birthday last twice as long! The cartoons are brillinat and the stories are really fuuny. It's so good you forget its a maths book.

The main differences between this and the previous Murderous Maths books are the obvious ones: the larger format and the colour. Inside, it's everything that regular readers will have come to expect from the series: a range of mathematical topics presented in typically humorous fashion - with the usual cast of MM characters (Dolly and the gangsters, Pongo and Veronica, the Fogsworths, Urgum and Grizelda, Thag, the nutty Pure Mathematicians, Professor Fiendish and Truffles and of course the evil Gollarks from the planet Zog) plus guest appearances from some ancient Greeks and a cicada. There's plenty of number theory and trivia of the same sort that went into "Numbers: the Key to the Universe", while other topics covered include astronomy, geometry, topology, probability, combinatorics and harmonics. Most of the material is suitable for children in the lower years of secondary school (11-13), although bright upper primary children will get something out of it and there's plenty to keep older readers interested.

What a fantastic book. It is great to read or dip into. To use some of the wonderful facts to share with others. The cartoons help in making this a must for all schools.

Who said maths can't be fun? A full colour book from the author of the popular Murderous Maths series from Scholastic Books, this is packed with fun ways of increasing maths skills. The reader is taken on a tour of the Murderous Maths building where a huge range of activities are going on - there are murderous pennies, infinite flowers and exact eggs, how to win a load of money... the list goes on. Each mathematical concept is clearly explained, there are activities to try out and links to related topics. Kjartan Poskitt has a real passion for maths and this comes across wonderfully in all his books, and never better than in this one. Brilliant cartoons add to the fun. A super book for home or school use.

Bought 2 of these for our grandchildren, who found them excellent. Maths explained in a way youngsters (and adults) can understand.
