Synopsis

The Lion's Share by Matthew McElligott

When Ant receives a special invitation to dine with Lion, she is ready to be on her best behavior. During dessert, the other guests do not mind their manners, each one taking half of the remaining cake as it is passed around. By the time it reaches Ant, barely a crumb is left for her to share with the King! She promises to make up for it by baking another cake for the King, and not to be outdone, all the other animals in turn offer to make twice as many cakes as the next. By the time the hippo speaks up, he's to bake 256 peanut butter cakes! With McElligott's signature humor and gorgeous mixed-media art, the math concepts of halving and doubling have never been so much fun.

Reviews

Praise for Backbeard: Pirate for Hire McElligott's mixed-media illustrations are striking. -School Library Journal Praise for Backbeard and the Birthday Suit Properly capped with a back cover of equally hilarious alternative outfits and a squat, glowering, hirsute paper doll, this makes the funniest makeover since Laura Rader's Santa's New Suit. -Kirkus Reviews Pirate fans will enjoy this witty tale ...McElligott's mixed-media art is a joy. -Booklist Backbeard and the Birthday Suit really does have it all... flawless and fun and highly recommended for young readers and pre-readers. -January magazine

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
