Description

By Sven Volker

We start with a single tree: 1. As we turn the page, we are presented  with a sum doubling the number on the page before it: 1+1 = 2; 2+2 = 4;  4+4 = 8. In this way, we reach a million (actually 1,048,576) within 40  pages. Each sum is brought to life with a simple graphic illustration in  the distinctive style of Sven Völker. The dots form the back of a  ladybird, the bubbles in a cup of soda and the water in a swimming pool.  The final page opens up to a magnificent 8 page gatefold to accommodate  the final two big numbers. Gloriously simple in its concept and  execution, this is a book that will bring mathematics alive to parents  as well as children and will also make a stunning gift book.
