The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics

Chronicle Books
Norton Juster

From the author of Phantom Tollbooth, we have another fun twist on everyday experiences. With a line, a circle, and a squiggle as the main characters, a short story emerges that will engage different ages at different levels. Younger children learn about physical characteristics of shapes, older children will catch the play on words, and older folks will appreciate the dynamics of a "love triangle."
