Horn Book Guide (Spring 2010)
As guests arrive for King Arthur's birthday party, Sir Cumference and Lady Di attempt a headcount. Early efforts fail until they decide to group by tens, then hundreds. There are some clever math puns, and the Medieval-themed illustrations add humor as a cook frets over feeding the multitudes. However, the story is overlong, and its connection to place value is left for the last page.
