The dot and the line : a romance in lower mathematics.


Once upon a time there was a sensible straight line who was hopelessly in love with a beautiful dot. But the dot only had eyes for a wild and unkempt squiggle. All the line's romantic dreams were in vain until one day he discovered angles! Now he can be anything he wants, even a square! A love story with some geometric truths about relationships. Illustrations.
