New Math Book For Kids

I haven't seen it, but if Keith Devlin calls it "...one of the most amazing math books for kids I have ever seen," (and he does!) that's good enough for me. A new math book for children, entitled "You Can Count On Monsters" by Richard Schwartz reported on here (including a link to Devlin's rousing NPR audio piece on it):

Amazon lists it as a "hybrid math/art" book for grades 4-8, also using the words "delightful," "innovative," "ambitious," and "imaginative," in describing it. Got young kids? Sounds like a book to get.

ADDENDUM: another glowing review of the book, from a homeschooler, now appears here:
