The 14 Fibs of Gregory K.

You may think you know what a fib is, but Gregory K. has a whole different take on "fibs." Well, yes, he does tell a fib or two or 14, but he has also invented a new type of poetry based on the Fibonacci Sequence. You might think that means he is a mathematician trying to write poetry. Actually, he is anything but. He is a poet trying to fit into a family of mathemeticians, and the only way he can think of to do that is to enter City Math, the citywide math competition his brother has won for the last several years. He tells a few fibs which lead to a few more and pretty soon he is in over his head.

What kind of project will Gregory K. think up for this prestigious math competition? How will his fibs come back to haunt him? Will his family ever learn who he truly is inside?

Read The 14 Fibs of Gregory K., by Greg Pincus, to find out. Recommended for Grade 3 and up.
