Praise

★ ”This fascinating exploration should awaken readers’ powers of observation and appreciation for the intricacies of nature.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ ”Using clear text and outstanding color photographs, Campbell explores the concept of these unusual shapes. . . An afterword reveals more of Mandlebrot’s background and work, which will be an inspiration to budding scientists/mathematicians.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“This beautifully designed volume is a useful resource and, apparently, the only children’s book devoted to fractals.” —Booklist

“Through examples of what fractals are and what they aren’t, this photo essay introduces a complex mathematical idea in a simple, inviting way. Using a straightforward text and eye-catching photographs, the Campbells start with the familiar: spheres, cones, cylinders–shapes readers can find and readily name in their environments. But then they move on to the more elaborate forms . . . For visual learners, this is a particularly accessible demonstration of an intriguing concept.” —Kirkus Reviews
