This story is the first told by Arithmetic Mouse and is the first book in the series. A. Mouse shares the stories of his ancestors interwoven with their unique and special Metamorphic powers for mathematics and integrated into the historical development of mathematics.
The book blends a possible beginning of mathematics and introduces the Metamorphic Mice. Metamorphic Mice were created as a whimsical way to illuminate the marvels of math to make positive changes in the way humans learn and think about mathematics. The vocabulary is rich to play upon mathematical terms and ignite self-exploration into mathematics.
Marvella Mouse is the first Metamorphic Mouse. The Curve family, Helix, Parabola, Cardioid, and Cycloid, has a problem, and Marvella Mouse decides to intervene. What happens next is the discovery that sets the stage for readers to open their eyes to the world around them through mathematics.
