An attractive tale of a little known mathematician. While not a unique figure, Hypatia, has proved to be one of the most important and lasting women of her field. This story introduces the reader to a person, a world and a time that is not known by many. Pam Paparone's wonderfully colorful and inspiring illustrations help this time, place and person come alive again. While the story itself is straightforward, the information given is vastly detailed. Love's author notes and information at the end of the book continues a fabulous read. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
