In Mita and the Ograk, a young girl is kidnapped by a grotesque monster and forced to tend his stolen sheep. Her only chance of survival is to outwit and outcount the monstrous Ograk and devise clever counting methods to keep track of his ever-increasing flock of sheep. Through the character of Mita, this mathematical fable recapitulates some the ingenious counting methods that our ancestors invented to make counting large numbers easier over the ages.

Tannis Calder is a gifted storyteller. Mita and the Ograk has captivated my students and fully engaged their minds and emotions in the invention of numbers. It has been my most important resource for teaching number systems and place value in the primary grades.
