This is a playful tale of Rene Descartes' discovery of the cartesian coordinate system. When Descartes cannot seem to keep track of any of his belongings, he develops a classification/storage system for his stuff. With amusing illustrations, even your reluctant reader will want to read this funny story again and again. It's quite an entertaining introduction to the history of mathematics!
