A lively, joyful story of an eccentric math genius.

This picture book biography of a great mathematician isn't just about math, although I love how it celebrates the world of numbers. It is also about a man who devoted his life to something he loved. But he devoted himself so wholly he couldn't cook, clean, do laundry, or perform other basic tasks. Paul Erdos created a unique life for himself. This fascinating exploration of that life is appropriate for all ages. As a parent of a math lover, I loved sharing this book with my daughter about someone who loves math even more than her!
