A fun series for encouraging active learning of mathematics using games and colours
“Who is afraid of mathematics?”, the series which encourages children ages 6-7 to actively learn mathematics through the use of games and colors, has become well-known since its publication in November 2018. In Frankfurt 2018, where it was presented for the first time, the French-language worldwide rights were immediately sold. Then, in April, at the Bologna’s Children Book Fair, interest in this series literally exploded, with the purchase of translation rights by China and Turkey, and the start of a purchase evaluation by 15 other countries around the world. Meanwhile, in Italy 20,000 copies were sold on the market in just 8 months.
The map below shows the countries where translation rights have already been sold and the ones where the series is under evaluation.
