Danielle does not have her math homework. She knows she put it in her folder. Now where is it? She finds it when she returns home as well as a pencil. Who is the pencil? Why does he have her homework?
I enjoyed this quick tale. Matthew, the pencil--AKA--the Math Monster--helps Danielle to realize she knows her math. He helps her with her confidence. Her negative reactions change when she realizes she did her math well. I did not like Kristi, the mean girl at school. She was a nasty piece of work.
This is a good book for your early readers.
