Math Attack, by Joan Horton

Everyone who has had a good math teacher has had to learn the number facts. Arithmetic strain strikes the main character when she can't recall what seven times ten is. Numbers start flying out of her head and cause pandemonium all over town. Neither the school nurse, the police department, nor the local TV station seems to be able help. When the gears start spinning in her head, the girl miraculously remembers the answer, but what happens when the teacher gives her an example from the nine times table?
This illustrated literature has frantic illustrations which make a common, stressful situation full of humor. 2009
