Praise for A Fishy Mystery:
“Fantastic book for teaching Venn diagrams, but kids will love it, too! Very well done! Highly recommended.”—S. Buckles, Tarver-Rendon Elementary School, Association of Region XI Librarians, Fort Worth, TX

A Fishy Mystery is one of the very few mathematical stories in the market right now that explicitly and cleverly demonstrate the awesomeness of Venn diagrams. The storyline is engaging. Illustrations by Cary Pillo are mathematically correct, and just great in general. Diversity of characters in the story is abundant. Specifically, we are pleased to see a female ethnic leading character. All in all, we LOVE it!”—Maths Through Stories

“Third-grade students stayed highly engaged while listening to A Fishy Mystery, and the story sparked many responses. The application of a Venn diagram to solve a mystery, as a process of elimination, was quite clever. We will use this book again.”—Teaching Children Mathematics

“Highly recommended.”—Children’s Bookwatch
