Thomas Flintham: Marvellous Maths Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2014

We are very pleased to announce that Thomas Flintham's Marvellous Maths, written by Jonathan Litton and published by Templar, has been shortlisted in the 'Best Book for Facts' category for the very influential Blue Peter Book Awards 2014. The two winning books will be announced live on Blue Peter for World Book Day on 6th March 2014.

Marvellous Maths is an engaging and exciting exploration of maths, from the invention of zero to the geometry of a donut! Clear, humorous text with Tom's bright illustrations and interactive novelties help explain topics including numbers, geometry, probability, transformations and statistics. The focus is on making maths accessible and exciting, so each topic has an investigation for young number-smiths to try at home.

It's been Thomas Flintham's month as his book, Molecule Mayhem, written by Tom Adams, won this year's 2013 ALCS Award for Educational Writing. This book is an outstanding example of a non-fiction pop-up chemistry book that inspires young readers aged 5-11 years, as it seeks to engage by introducing them to complex concepts in the strange nature of matter.
