ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Katherine knows that everyone has a passion. Her Dad's is art, her Mum's is insects, her brother's is music. She's tried lots of things herself, but they aren't for her, because the thing she likes the best is - maths! She knows it's everywhere, hidden in the everyday, and that her passion can be hard to understand. But that's okay, because there are infinite ways to see the world…  Charming watercolour and ink illustrations demonstrate some of Katherine's pleasures, and a lovely section at the back simply explains fractals, basic polygons, solid figures, concentric circles, types of curves, trajectories and sets. And yes, the little girl's name is a homage to the great American mathematician, Katherine Johnson! Deserves to be a classic! Lindy Jones

Some people see the beauty of the world through art. Some people see the beauty of the world through music. Our heroine sees the beauty of the world through... maths? Others don't understand her passion, but she doesn't mind. There are infinite ways to see the world - and her way is through numbers.
