A New York Times Winner
Best Illustrated Books of 2012

An ALA 2013 Notable Children's Book

“…this smart book follows pensive 8-year-old Uma, who wonders, upon viewing the stars, ‘How could I even think about something as big as infinity?’ Swiatkowska’s Victorian-style drawings are vaguely reminiscent of Edward Gorey, and Hosford effectively reflects the ways in which young children might grapple with, and come to some understanding of, such an impenetrable notion.”
—Pamela Paul, New York Times

"Uma's struggle with infinity offers readers a playful,
gorgeous introduction to a mathematical concept...a stellar artistic
vision of the power of intergenerational love."
Kirkus (starred review)
