From atoms to beehives to the movement of the planets, everything around us is buzzing with maths.

Visualise cosmic distances, discover the geometry in nature and marvel at the wonders of technology. 

The Language of the Universe Press Reviews

Organised into four sections, every concept and idea is clearly explained in a short paragraph or diagram designed to clearly illustrate the point in hand. The vibrantly-illustrated pages make the book inviting and intriguing, helping to lesson the potential fear of encountering some pretty big ideas. - Library Girl and Book Boy

But this book actually makes maths look interesting! The huge cover alone, with its glorious sparkles and colour, shows that it's not just about dull numbers. - Childtastic Books
