Instead of dry exposition and endless drill exercises, these books are filled with the fun and page-turning tales of Fred Gauss, a child prodigy math genius born on the western slopes of the Siberian mountains. During his hilarious adventures, he encounters every day situations that call for solving language arts problems.
Written by Dr. Stanley Schmidt with the intent to make language arts come alive with lots of humor, clear explanations, and silly illustrations that stick in the mind.
