Summary
Some kids collect baseball cards. Some collect action figures. Me? I collect fractions. George Cornelius Factor (or GCF, for short) is crazy about fractions. When a brand-new 5/9 goes up for auction, he's the first in line to buy it. The bidding heats up -- and then the lights go out. When they go back on, the 5/9 is gone. Has the mysterious Dr. Brok stolen the fraction and disguised it? Can our intrepid hero strip away the disguise with his trusty Reducer? Equal parts action and humor add up to a wholly entertaining introduction to simplifying fractions
Summary
When a valuable fraction goes missing, young inventor George Cornelius Factor, suspecting the work of the villainous Dr. Brok, creates a tool for simplifying and revealing fractions that have been sneakily disguised
