Description
His father may be a great magician, but when Enzo tries magic spells, things usually go wrong. The boy much prefers the magic of mathematics, and in this introduction to tessellation—the division of a surface into shapes without gaps or overlaps—for readers 7 to 9, Enzo is called upon to help Tessel the shoemaker fulfill a royal housekeeper's command to make 12 pairs of shoes from one piece of leather. After he accidentally turns Tessel into a toad, however, it is Enzo and the shoemaker's young sister Aida who together must work out the problem.

"Before long (and with a few laughs), they use tessellations successfully to meet the housekeeper's challenge. The illustrated glossary and notes in the back matter explain the mathematics, history, and current use of tessellations. The watercolor illustrations clearly and astutely express the necessary concepts, both mathematical and historical. There is even some fun embedded in them: 26 hidden tessellations."—School Library Journal
