Morgan and the Monster of the Deep by Addie Abacus is the second book in the Magic Math Adventure series. Morgan and Rusty set out on a ship to find the traitor that betrayed them to the thieves. This takes them on an unforgettable adventure where they discover a mysterious island, a sea creature that’s beyond anything they’ve seen before, a journey to Nantucket where they encounter strange new wonders, and a betrayal that changes everything. Abacus once again blends fantasy with exciting lessons in math and history that will take children on a wild adventure that will open their eyes to the magic of learning.

Addie Abacus brings to life another delightful read where kids can discover magic and explore the fun of education. Children will learn multiplication, division, and symmetry as Morgan and Rusty are brought face to face with an unexpected monster in the water. The story picks up from the events of the previous book which saw the two friends set off on a ship in search of answers. The story also weaves into their adventure the myth of sea monsters which has a fun placement within their adventure. The story is blended with real history which opens children’s minds to the past by teaching them fun historical facts such as the life of Thomas Sandsbury and the Barnum mermaid hoax. Abacus uses the kids’ time at sea to teach about spiral whirlpools and water pressure while also bringing to life mythology and magic. Morgan and the Monster of the Deep is an exciting story that combines adventure, magic, and math and will delight kids as well as teach them to have fun with learning.
