How does 1+1 = 288?
A family of rabbits soon supplies the answer! This book is based on a problem that was solved by the mathematician Fibonacci, in the 13th century. But it is not a book about maths, it is a book about rabbits - lots of rabbits. Hop along to Fibonacci's Field and follow Lonely and Chalk Rabbit through a year as they try to cope with their fast expanding brood and handle a different seasonal challenge each month, from the cold of February to the wet of April and the heat of July. This extraordinary picture book is packed with gorgeous details and novelty elements including a baby rabbit record book, a carrot recipe book and a surprise pop-up ending. The paper engineering is by Ania Mochlinska.
