Basher Basics: Math, A Book You Can Count On created and illustrated by Simon Basher:
Meet Zero, a bubbly fellow who will dissolve you to nothing, and say hello to the all-action Units, who just love to measure. Get a load of greedy Multiply, a big guy who hoards numbers together, and stand amazed by mysterious Pi, who goes on and on and on . . . to Infinity!
Multiply your number know-how with Basher's unique one-stop guide to the building blocks of mathematics. Packed with top tips and memorable characters, this is an essential book for students ages 8 and up.
Simon Basher is the creator and illustrator of The Periodic Table, Physics, Biology, and Astronomy. His characters bridge the gap between edgy Manga and the cuteness of Hello, Kitty!

Appealing to a broad range of readers, this little book introduces plenty of ideas to build on while presenting familiar concepts in a fresh way. Booklist
