Not just for those struggling with maths,
This review is from: The Number Devil: A Mathematical Adventure (Paperback)
We were recommended this book for our son, who is gifted in maths and loves number problems and puzzles. I started reading it to him as a bedtime story a year or so ago and he would volunteer to go to bed just so we could get onto the next chapter! He's just finished re-reading it for himself and it remains a favourite.
It's quirky, introduces many mathematical concepts that I struggled to understand, and appeals to his sense of humour.
If you have a mathematically gifted young child, this book should have pride of place on his or her bookshelf.
