You’re cordially invited to a pizza party at Boswell with P. J. Funnybunny author Marilyn Sadler, presenting her latest book great for ages four and up, Charlie Piechart and the Case of the Missing Pizza, in which Charlie Piechart is on the case when a slice of pepperoni pizza disappears. This event will include a talk, reading, activities, and—of course—pizza!
With a dinnertime mystery and five hungry suspects, Charlie Piechart makes fractions fun. Charlie Piechart has a piechart for a belly, and it’s a belly that’s perfect for showing fractions. In his first mystery, perfect for little math enthusiasts, it’s pizza night at the Piecharts. How about veggies on top? "NO VEGGIES!" yell 4/6 of the pizza eaters. No one wants anchovies, either. They like Charlie’s idea best: pepperoni. But with 6 pizza eaters, 3 sizes of pizza on the delivery menu, and 2 slices allotted for each person, it is no surprise when there’s a mystery! Screams from Charlie’s sisters kick off the mystery: 1 of the 12 slices has gone missing. So who did it? Charlie counts the suspects and questions each one (except Mom). But could he be forgetting someone?
