When the family takes a car trip to Super Funland amusement park, Molly is trapped in the backseat with her little brother, Eddie. She's soon fed up with his teasing about her new glasses, but Molly devises a plan. Using her skills of pattern recognition and prediction, Molly convinces Eddie that the glasses give her X-ray vision and by the time the trip is over, he's begging for a pair of his own. The book ends with a page on looking at series of numbers, recognizing the rules governing their patterns, and predicting the next ones in the series. The digitally enhanced artwork clearly shows the patterns, while illustrating the story with bold colors in a cartoonlike style. A good supplement to math units, this brightly illustrated paperback also offers a bit of moral support to the many children who wear glasses.
