Title: The Multiplying Mysteries of Mount Ten
Author: Krista Van Dolzer
Stars: 5 stars
As a Mom I am looking for books that encourage reading as well as teaching. The Author uses the mystery at the summer camp as a way to introduce math and create math problems readers (Child and parents ) do not realize they are doing as the story progressive in a fun and unique way. Projects, quest, encoding and decoding puzzles that everyone will enjoy.
This is a must read for parents who have children who struggle with math and enjoyment of reading.

Twelve-year-old painter Esther can't wait to attend Camp Vermeer, the most prestigious art camp around. But when her stepdad accidentally drives up the wrong mountain, she lands at Camp Archimedes—a math camp!
Determined to prove herself to the other campers, she tackles a brain-teaser that’s supposed to be impossible—and solves it in a single day. But not everyone is happy about it . . . someone wants her out of camp at any cost, and starts leaving cryptic, threatening notes all over the camp’s grounds. Esther doesn’t know who to trust—will she solve this riddle before it’s too late?
Featuring tricky logic puzzles readers can solve along with the characters and starring a unique, smart, and crafty young heroine, this story has just the right mix of mystery, humor, and wit.
