Nine year old Harry Moraghan never found maths easy. Then he discovered he REALLY hated it when it came to learning multiplication tables. So Harry's mum invented an ingenious way of remembering his tables by using rhymes and pictures. In TWO WEEKS Harry had all his multiplication tables down pat. Soon after, Harry's teacher gave the class a test. Harry finished it in five minutes and got every question right! News of Harry's Magic Tables spread like wildfire in his school. In no time, the book was shared with some lucky classmates, friends, cousins, and eventually complete strangers too! Now many happy children know their tables inside out - and so can you!
Stephanie Moraghan is a Montessori teacher and a volunteer at The Children's Sunshine Home in Leopardstown, Dublin 18. While Stephanie was out one evening, Harry and his grandfather sent the manuscript for Harry's Magic Tables to a number of publishers. The rest is history - well maths, actually!
