abstract: Over the past six years, I have been working on a project that aims to help children explore Maths in a way that is fun and also incorporated in their day-to-day activities, in particular with the enjoyment of listening to stories. As such, I created a set of stories which make children fly with their imagination, and then think and solve several mathematical challenges. This idea evolved in two directions: book publishing and live story telling. Either way the aesthetical aspect was always a priority, together with the mathematical content. All together I wished to join the aesthetical pleasure of a good illustration with the fantasy of infant literature, and also with scientific experimentation and the development of reasoning, in general. In this paper I present the project and some of the results obtained.
