Have you heard the story of Cinderella? Well, you don't know the half of it. Cinderella had a twin sister, Tinderella. They each did half the housework, half the mending, and half the mean step-sister tending. But when they meet only one prince, what will they do? Division can't solve that problem. Fortunately, the clever Tinderella realizes that there's a flip side to division: multiplication! The whole story has twice the magic and double the fun!
From the author The Three Ninja Pigs and Ninja Red Riding Hood comes the fractioned fairy tale of Cinderella and her less-famous sister, full of punny rhymes and, of course, plenty of math fun!
"Breezy, pun-filled rhymes introduce Cinderella’s twin, Tinderella, who uses math to divide their wicked stepmother’s chore list in half.... Vibrant, digitally enhanced illustrations rendered in ink, gouache, and watercolor capture all the merriment until, just as in the original tale, one smitten prince is left with one shoe. Since a prince can’t be divided, Tinderella, ever the mathematician, asks the fairy godmother to double him. A fitting ending explains how Cinderella and her prince became famous and wound up on the throne while Tinderella and her prince won the kingdom’s math awards and kept fractions flourishing with baby quadruplets."
