“Such a fun read for students and adults!”

In “The Exasperated Clock,” the 12 numbers on the clock are silly, noisy, and irresponsible. Consequently, the Clock decides to throw each of the numbers off which becomes quite a problem because the numbers are on their own and are clueless. Eventually each number finds a better job than working on the clock. Kids will giggle their way through this book laughing at the antics of the numbers and their gainful, whimsical and surreal employment.
A positive review on the book’s Amazon page reads:

“This book is an entertaining, intelligent and an adventure book all wrapped up in one. The story is inviting, inventive with just enough silly playfulness. Fun for kids and the adults who may be reading it as well. The illustrations are perfect for this story. They draw the reader in with the expressions, changing perspectives and humorous detail. I hear rumors of more books to come from this amazing author. I hope it’s not just a rumor! Write on!”
This book is a great read aloud with lots of opportunity for funny voices and emotions! Also, the numbers get to explore the best activity for their individual interests. This makes for good discussion of what can bring fun and predictable chaos into a situation. Kids will enjoy the number adventures.

Author Bio

Debbie Hickman was born in Vancouver, Washington, grew up in Idaho and is now living in Sierra Vista, Arizona with her family. In between she has lived and taught in Arizona, Bahrain, Kuwait, India, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Thailand and Malaysia. She was inspired to write this story when learning that serious mathematicians often referred to numbers as their “friends.” Einstein’s famous question “What time is it really?” gave momentum to her thinking as well. Of course, the response to her stories from her numerous imaginative young students over the years inspired her to keep telling and writing more stories. Other books by Hickman will be forthcoming about how each number evolved in their life beyond the clock. Stay tuned.
