Overview

The science club has created a big "book bandit" sculpture in the public library. But how did they get the sculpture in through the tiny library window? The librarians offer a prize to whoever can figure out the puzzle. The kids from Sifu Faiza's Kung Fu School know they can win, but it will take all of their geometry skills plus some unexpected cooperation to size up . . . The Book Bandit.

About the Author

Melinda Thielbar is a writer, teacher, statistician, and student of the martial arts. Manga Math Mysteries, including The Kung Fu Puzzle and The Secret Ghost is her first children’s series.



In 2005, Melinda left SAS to finish a PhD in statistics. She was awarded a VIGRE fellowship at North Carolina State University. This fellowship is awarded to students likely to make a strong contribution to education in the mathematics and statistics field. Again, Melinda earned a fantastic reputation in the classroom. Her statistics lectures and examples were known for their ability to hold her students' interest—no easy task in a statistics for non-majors class that's held at 8:00am.


Melinda lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband, writer Richard Dansky, and their three cats. She is currently working on the research portion of her PhD.
