Overview

Winner of multiple awards for educational fiction as well as quality fantasy, this charming story brings us the adventures of Julie in the Land of Mathematics.



Julie is a young teen who struggles with her homework, especially math, until a mysterious Imaginary Number leads her into Mathematics. There she meets Al the gebra (who is like a zebra), and horses who represent elements on the Periodic chart. She sets off on a quest to find her way home, and in the process, learns the foundations of algebra and chemistry.



Join Julie in her journey through Mathematics, where the Orders of Operations are actual places and chemistrees are real plants with atomic fruit. Will Julie ever get home?



Written when the author was age fourteen, this work of fiction has been used in various school systems throughout the U.S to help supplement cross-curriculum learning. It can also be enjoyed as light fantasy reading.
