The Wing Wing Brothers Carnival De Math

Ethan Long. Holiday House, $15.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8234-2604-1
The eponymous fowl siblings, first seen in The Wing Wing Brothers Math Spectacular!, test their computing strengths in carnival activities that address counting, adding, and subtracting by 10s. In the first episode, Willy, Wendell, Woody, Wilmer, and Walter take whacks at a high striker (“Willy tests his strength. But he is a weakling. He scores 10”); a hot dog–eating contest and ride on the Wedgie Wheel offer counting addition/subtraction opportunities (“Can Willy eat the last 10 wieners? Yes! 10 – 10 = 0. Willy is the wiener winner!”). Long makes each concept clear in his comics-style panels, but he keeps the emphasis on fun throughout (each of the three story segments ends with a gag of some kind), augmenting these math lessons with plenty of laughs. Ages 4–8. (Jan.)
