6 is afraid of 7. Rumor has it 7 ate 9, and everyone knows 7 is after 6. So 6 goes to see Private I, who agrees that 7 is an odd fella. Fully of punny math humor, 7 ate 9 is a hilarious whodunit mystery that will delight kids and teachers alike. This is written by a dear friend, Tara Lazar (author of The Monstore, I Thought This Was a Bear Book, Normal Norman, Little Red Gliding Hood and Way Past Bedtime), and is truly one of my favorites. A masterpiece of puns, it is perfectly complimented by beautiful illustrations. Watch the mystery unfold, as Private I tries to add up the facts. Currently featured on the display shelves of most book stores – don’t even hesitate – just buy it.
