Come to an exciting journey into the Wonderland of Numbers.

'As for numbers, they hate nobody and nobody can afford to hate them,' says Neha's father, who is a supportive parent trying to re-instill confidence in his child. Apart from revealing the specialties of each individual number, from zero to nine, and little mathematical tricks, Shakuntala Devi has underscored another very important aspect. It is upto parents and teachers to ensure that children are initiated into a lifelong love affair with numbers.

An engaging child, Neha, suddenly starts lagging in Maths when a new Maths teacher arrives and she starts converting her fear of the teacher into a terror of Maths. Matters touch the nadir when she scores a zero in a test. On the way home that day, she meets with an accident. While her parents and teachers suffer an anxious vigil till she regains consciousness, she travels to the Kingdom of Zero through her sub-conscious mind. In the Wonderland of Numbers is the story of Neha's adventures in the Kingdom of Zero.

About the author

With missionary zeal Shakuntala Devi has been pursuing her lifetime objective of demystifying numbers and making them a part of every person’s daily creative energy. She believes numbers are fun; she believes anyone can enjoy numbers, specially children. To give shape to her dreams of making maths a fun activity for younger children, now she is working on setting up a maths institute in Karnataka, India.

Hailing from a Brahmin family, Shakuntala Devi was initiated to maths by her grandfather and by the age of five hailed as a prodigy. She wants people to shed their phobia of maths, which tends to get communicated to children. Through her eminently readable books and highly entertaining lectures she has done much to help people get friendly with numbers. It is when maths is approached in a spirit of fun, she says, only then can we put it to its most complete use and extract the greatest mileage from it in terms of application.
