Logic to the Rescue

Logic to the Rescue

Kris Langman

Price: FREE

So, I’ll start off by saying this is a cute book and I did enjoy reading it. There were a few times that the story moved on before I felt like it had resolved and there were some things that I felt like were just left hanging. But even with those few things it was a cute book and a great way to introduce someone to some concepts of logic.

S. West

Logic to the Rescue is designed to teach kids critical thinking. A combination of fiction and non-fiction, it weaves examples of logical fallacies into a fictional sword-and-sorcery fantasy. Simple examples for testing a hypothesis and setting up experiments in chemistry and physics are integrated into the plot.

Who will it appeal to?

Kids ages 10 to 14, though adults who want to brush up on their knowledge of logical fallacies such as post hoc ergo propter hoc, ad hominem, and counting the hits may also enjoy the book.

Is it part of a series?

Yes, Logic to the Rescue is the first book in the series. The second book in the series is Castles and Chemistry.
Summary:

When Nikki Murrow lost her first High School debating match she did what anyone would do – she hid in a closet. She found comfort hiding among the mops and cleaning supplies, but she also found two imps – tiny creatures from a magical kingdom who lead her on a strange journey into the Realm of Reason.

There is Fuzz, an imp with a fondness for breaking the rules. And Athena, a model of impish manners, decorum and spotlessly clean clothes. Together they convince Nikki to join them in the battle against the king’s evil advisor, Maleficious.

In her debate class, Nikki learned the value of logic and reason, but who knew her ability to formulate a hypothesis would help a mud-splattered Knight redeem his tarnished reputation? Or that her knowledge of logical fallacies would rid the Realm’s Haunted Hills of ghosts?

Maleficious’s hold on the king is strong, but Nikki and the imps are determined that the Realm will not fall into his clutches. Will their mastery of logic rid the kingdom of the ignorance Maleficious is spreading, or will the inhabitants of the Realm fall back under the sway of centuries-old superstition?
