'A STEM-themed picture book celebrating the love of learning, the magic of mathematics and the joy of finding a kindred spirit, from two award-winning creators.'
From the parallel lines of moonlight pouring through her bedroom blinds, to counting daisy petals in the garden, Maddie adores maths. If only she had a friend who marvelled at it as she does. Then Dad takes Maddie, along with her new classmate Priya, to the observatory where the unfathomable numbers of stars take their breath away.
This story came from my own experience of loving maths when I was little. I still love it. It fills me with wonder to think that you can find maths everywhere, in pineapples, flowers, starfish, waves, even galaxies!
The story also came from our darling Maddie who told me how her teacher taught her about the Fibonacci sequence and and the golden ratio during recess in Year 2.
It's wonderful when you find someone who shares your passion. And it's also wonderful when you find someone who can combine maths and art like the remarkable Gabriel Evans!
Thank you Maddie and Gabriel.
