Series: Sir Cumference #1
32 pages, Picture Book

A fun, educational read the parent will enjoy reading with their child.


Note: I'm uncertain what age the book was written for. It would also be good up to age 12.

Sir Cumference and Lady Di must try to figure out how to fit all of King Arthur's knights comfortably at the king's table. By the end of the story, the reader is forever able to remember what the outside edge of a circle is called, as well as the diameter and radius.


Good is rewarded, and peace is sought for in all situations. Many of the knights behave immaturely in quarreling and whispering.

Spiritual Content



The knights joust and King Arthur think that the Circumscribers (their next door neighbor) might be preparing to make war. King Arther says that something feels like a sword poking his stomach and it makes him want to fight.

Drug and Alcohol Content

Wine is drunk.

Sexual Content


Crude or Profane Language or Content



In the other books from this series you have to be vaguely familiar with the equations already in order to understand the math concepts conveyed in the books. But not with this story. If you don't know what 1+2 is, you will still probably understand the concepts in this book. For those who have already learned what circumference, diameter, and radius are, this book is a great reinforcement.

The plot is enjoyable, the characters are fun, and the descriptions aren't too long. An enjoyable kids' story.

Fun Score: 5
