Addison Addley hates math. He hates public speaking too. Actually, he hates anything that involves work, but he only has a couple of weeks to write and memorize his grade five speech. The problem is, he can't think of a single topic. When he finally comes up with an excellent idea for a speech, it almost writes itself, but it's his poor math skills that make speech day unforgettable.

A great story that will resonate with lots of kids--dread of speech writing, public speaking and difficulties with math. Ultimately a book about perseverance and taking steps to conquer your fears. Author from southern Ontario.

This book will make you laugh out loud! The characters seem real. If you are working on a speech, you may relate to Addison's situation.
