" Full of numerical/math puns. Detective/private investigator/mystery genre mentor. Groan-worthy jokes/puns. Somewhat cheesy, but some nice math content connections can be made. " said.

" "7 ate 9" is laugh out loud funny! A new story inspired by the old math riddle, "Why was 6 afraid of 7".Great book with cross-curriculum uses - tons of math vocabulary and opportunity to discuss. " said.

" Punny, noir-ish mystery that will probably go over the heads of younger children. Great illustrations by Ross MacDonald. " said.

" Recommended as a read-aloud for older kids, rather than as a read-together for toddlers or early independent reading. " said.

" Super clever story with an unexpected twist! Witty and fun to read and re-read! " said.

" 3.25 stars I thought this was one was cute, but after reading Normal Norman...it was just okay! Still fun..and I hate to admit that yes, I have wondered "Why do I have two 9's and no 6's" when labeling a Lego Entry...Hum! " said.

"Lazar, Tara 7 ate 9: The Untold Story, illustrated by Ross MacDonald. PICTURE BOOK. Disney, 2017. $18. 9781484717790

I think many people know the horror story in the middle of the first ten numbers where 7-8-9. Lazar and MacDonald have turned it into a noir mystery with a great twist to the mystery. I would reserve this for slightly older students who already understand the joke and can appreciate the puns, though.

" Maybe it's because I'm in the midst of Booklist's Mystery Month madness, but this book amused me with its numerous puns and visual jokes. Sure, some of them, like the slice of Pi selling for $3.14 in the diner, will be missed by the intended younger audience, but the adult or older sibling reading it aloud to them will get some extra chuckles. I loved Ross MacDonald's vintage look artwork to accompany the 50s noir mystery. " said.
