Alice in Pastaland

By: Alexandra Wright / Illustrated by: Reagan Word

Suppose that Alice had fallen into a wonderland where pasta was the only common denominator.

In this clever parody of Lewis Carroll's classic tale, Alexandra Wright presents a mathematically aware Alice whose adventures are an appetizing combination of numbers, humor, and fun. With the Math Hatter dishing it up, the Adder using his noodle, and the Quantum Cat adding spice, arithmetic is full of pastabilities.

Maximum quantity available reached.

Teaching Children Mathematics

Alice In Pastaland is a clever and humorous tale written as a parody of the classic Alice in Wonderland. With each page, Alice finds herself immersed in a new adventure of pasta and problem solving. The borders of each page contain number patterns that children can explore and connect with the story, the characters, or both. Children in grades 3 and above will appreciate the double meanings and puns that are woven into this tale. Even character names, such as Quantum Cat, the Math Hatter, and a snake called Adder, may inspire some interesting class discussions.

Pasta Math is a teacher resource written to accompany Alice in Pastaland. It contains numerous games and activities to integrate literature with such mathematics concepts as time, money, measurement, patterning, number sense, fractions, basic operations, and problem solving. The activities are nicely varied for multiple ability levels and ages... Both books would be a whimsical addition to the elementary classroom with, according to the author, a variety of "pasta-bilities."
