Until one day he finds a magical book in which an evil wizard king has imprisoned a queen — and the only way to save her is with math! To rescue her, Alex and his friends must solve 400 mathematical puzzles posed by a menagerie of monster guards — and before long, Alex is solving riddle after riddle.
