Review Quotes




* "In Gravett's gifted hands, an old math problem springs to life--and more life and more life! Medieval mathematician Fibonacci's "rabbit problem," in which bunnies breed at a specified rate, provides the structure of this glorious faux-wall calendar that watches a rabbit community from January to December...Readers needn't care about the math of Fibonacci Numbers to love the hilarious, jam-packed visual details, many of which are playfully metatextual...Endless fun to pore over for kids and math-minded or geeky adults.--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Whimsical ideas proliferate as fast as rabbits in Gravett's splendid sendup of Fibonacci's query."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This hilarious (and accurate) tale can be enjoyed by the numerically challenged and gifted alike."--School Library Journal
