Overview

Once there was a tailor who had three fine sons. Whenever his older sons Ivan and Alex weren't working, they practiced measuring, cutting, and sewing. But Misha, the youngest, spent every moment poring over maps of the world and dreaming of traveling far and wide.

When the Archduke ordered new clothes for an important journey, the tailor asked his sons for help. The father was pleased with Ivan's and Alex's work, and said they would make fine tailors. But, alas, though Misha's cloak of circles was very beautiful, it was full of open spaces. The tailor could fill the Archduke's order, but what could he do about Misha the dreamer?

Complemented by luminous watercolor paintings, this warm and perceptive tale introduces the relationships between geometric shapes and proves that learning math can be as delightful as reading a well-told story.
