The Math JungleDavid HensonThe Math JunglePeter Ekberg är tillbaka med en ny faktabok! Denna gången med en annorlunda mattebok som utan några räkneuppgifter berättar om matte på ett roligt och lättillgängligt sätt. Vilka är med i matematikens Hall of Fame? Hur uppstod matte och hur kan den användas? Illustrerad av David Henson som även illustrerat faktaboken Det brinner!    Det här är en mattebok som inte innebär något räknande alls. Inga uppgifter. Inga prov. Inget du måste göra annat än att läsa, fundera och ha kul. Boken handlar om roligt och gåtfullt matteklur som du kanske undrat över hemma och inte bara när du sitter med matteboken i skolan. Gnugga geniknölarna. Tänk noga! Nu börjar vi!

David Henson

David Henson is a freelance illustrator based Malmö.  

His work reflects a passion for a good, well told, story: something he believes can be discovered around every corner. He works to intrigue and capture the imaginations of his readers, inspiring them to connect with the characters and environments he illustrates.

David has illustrated a number of children's books and advertising campaigns. He is currently part of a Swedish-Arabic language and storytelling integration project called Al Hakawati (The Storytellerin Arabic) which has, so far, published four, well received, books of Syrian folk stories.  

With a careful attention to the background narrative, David adds depth and context to his work and uses colour and shape to create optimism and hope. ss

Having lived in Zimbabwe, England, South Africa, Jordan and Sweden, he has a fluid conception of 'home' and a well developed fascination with the world. He lives with his wife and two daughters.
