My 10yo DS has loved the Murderous Maths series. He is reading them for a second time and asking for more. Any suggestions? I think something on cryptography might go down well, but it needs to be pitched at the right level, and fun.

Sorry I can't help. But I have the same query so I am interested in the suggestions as well.

Has he read The Number Devil? it's got some quite advanced number theory concepts.

How old ? At my school book shop I sell quite a lot of Rob easton's books to yes 5 and 6 (how long is a piece of string , how many socks make a bait, why do buses come in threes) but they are much more sense than murderous - no pictures. So so number devil first

Age 10 and Year 6 Michaelapurple. I'm actually reading 'Why do Buses Come in Threes' myself at the mo because someone got me it for Christmas. Will definitely hand it on when I'm finished - I think it's right up his street.

10 y DD enjoying how many socks make a pair but we read it together FWIW. Also looking sideways at ayurvedic maths - lots of interesting calculation ideas.
