From Follett

Young Per and her cousin Radius set out to unlock the secret of Immeter before the sea serpent finds them.

From the Publisher
When young Per visits her uncle Sir Cumference and his family, she learns how to play the game, "Inners and Edges." After she finds a clue linking the game to the mysterious castle on the island of Immeter, she must figure out how to find the perimeter and area of a circle to unlock the island's secret. Math skills taught include finding the area and perimeter of a rectangle and a circle. Introduces an underlying concept of calculus--using straight lines to measure curves.

Horn Book Guide (Spring 2007)
Sir Cumference's niece, Per, and his son, Radius, head to the Isle of Immeter where they solve riddles (and evade a sea serpent) by applying the geometric concepts of area, perimeter, and circumference. The illustrations adequately evoke medieval times, but the story drags on, and the use of made-up terms (e.g., "inners" for area) may throw readers off.
