Join Sir Cumference and the gang for more wordplay, puns, and problem solving in the clever math adventure about place-value and counting by tens. Sir Cumference and Lady Di planned a surprise birthday party for King Arthur, but they didn't expect so many guests to show up. How many lunches will they need? And with more guests arriving by the minute, what about dinner? Sir Cumference and Lady Di count guests by tens, hundreds, and even thousands to help young readers learn place-value. Fans will love this new installment of the Sir Cumference series that makes math fun and accessible for all.
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.
