The world is often full of bamboozling headlines and numbers that don’t add up. But no need for panic. The book will turn readers into truth detectives, hunting down the truth about the world around them. Readers meet heroic truth detectives, such as Florence Nightingale who started a revolution with a pie chart. They will encounter dastardly villains who have tried to trip us up with dodgy data and misinformation. And they will learn how being smart and savvy with numbers, will help to be smart and savvy about everything else in life too. (9-12 yrs)
