About the Book


The name of the protagonist in this book is Muyang. Visiting different elementary schools, I spoke about my books and talked about Muyang. It seemed there were always some kids who would take to following me only to obstinately ask, “Miss Xiao, is Muyang really your son?”

Well, let me officially answer this question once again, “Yes, Muyang is really, really, really, my son!” However, please don’t make the assumption to take this book as a real-life documentary. It is a work of fiction indeed!


The character, Muyang, in the book is a math geek. At the age of eight, his greatest wish was to buy the highest floor of Burj Al Arab in Dubai so that people who love math all over the world could host a carnival there… Ha-ha! Take a guess, as to how much money he would need to do that! Delighted readers, please take a guess, as to what could happen next. I’ll give you a hint… Sounds like the start of another story…
