Kjartan's books have been translated into about 30 languages and include the 15 Murderous Maths books as well as books on space, puzzles, codes, magic and five historical musicals. He has also written several series of funny novels including Urgum the Axeman, his new Borgon the Axeboy and his award-winning Agatha Parrot series.
As well as endlessly touring the UK with his maths and space shows, he has been a TV presenter, a pub piano player and Widow Twankey in Aladdin. He has a selection of guitars, a collection of lethal old music synthesisers and two pinball tables. He plays all of them...badly!
The Murderous Maths of Everything was the winner of the School Library Association Award in 2011 in the category Children's Choice (age 7-12), best factual book.
This is a must see event to get your pupils fired up and excited about maths! Kjartan combines subtraction with slapstick and fractions with fun which has proved to be a winning combination.
Brand new for the re-launch of the primary national curriculum in autumn 2014 Murderous Maths:
Magic of Maths; Secrets of Sums; All Shapes and Sizes; Brain-Bending Basics
