Powell's Exceptionally handsome four-color illustrations and vignettes deepen the magic of this mathematically minded fantasy, Enzensberger's Europe, Europe first book for children. Robert is plagued by bad dreams until a mysterious creature called the Number Devil appears to him one night.
In fact, that would describe Robert, the main character in this book. He has been struggling with maths for as long as he can remember. One night, he dreams that he meets a little devil, The Number Devil, who teaches him, as he sleeps, all sorts of useful tricks with numbers.

My Dad made all aspects of mathe This book makes maths fun, even for those little people who believe it to be a laborious trudge through treacle. My Dad made all aspects of mathematics enjoyable for me from a very early age, almost from when I could walk and talk, by relating what we were seeing in the real world to mathematics in some way.
He didn't label the principles as geometry, algebra, arithmetic, and so on. He just mde it all part of my world. I just enjoy maths as much as living.
The same holds for Robert, and for readers of this lovely little book. My grandson was hating maths, and couldn't see the point. When I took him through the first chapter of The Number Devil, he could suddenly, and effortlessly, multiply 11 by 11, byby and so on.
He also learned, through self motivation inspired by his "new trick" to multiply any number you could throw at him by eleven.
This may seem a small step, but you can believe me when I tell you that it was a massive step for Alfie. Furthermore, he couldn't wait to get to school the next day to show his new skills to his class-mates and his teacher.
There was much more magic to be revealed in this great little book, and I would encourage anyone to share it with their children, even if they are already very numerate. It just gives them, and you, a new spin on an ancient subject. I found it really interesting as the concepts in mathematics were very interesting, yet explained in simple terms.
Each night for thirteen nights, the Number Devil teaches Robert about numbers and their properties. There are many properties explored throughout the book, like triangle numbers and Bonacci numbers, and the book teaches you about concepts these numbers can be applied to in real world situations, like the birth of rabbits, or the arrangement of desks.
When the Number Devil says goodbye, Robert feels more prepared for his math class, as in the beginning of the thirteen nights he hated it and had no interest in it. Thanks to the Number Devil, he knows more and his life in mathematics is easier.
I rated this book five stars because of the complexity in such a simple bedtime story. The Number Devil is one of the best books I have ever read, the story is easy to follow and it really makes you think.Second, the Number Devil tells us, “Number Paradise, Number Hell, Number Heaven – it’s all the same in the end” ().
This is really a key prime numbers are prima-donna numbers, imaginary numbers are called imaginative numbers and so on.
