Monkey is making a very special delivery with a little help from a lot of wheels. Starting with a unicycle, Monkey doubles that wheel so he has two-a bicycle! Doubling again, two wheels become four-a car! The fun multiplies until sixty-four wheels-and a surprise ride-get him to the birthday celebration just in time.

Children fascinated by vehicles will delight in Monkey's gentle adventure. And the lively read-aloud text and bright, graphic illustrations make this introduction to basic multiplication twice as nice.

Illustrated by Steve Haskamp.
