The Parrot's Theorem
by Denis Guedj

When Mr. Ruche, a reclusive Parisian bookseller, receives a letter from a long-lost friend in the Amazon bequeathing him a vast library of mathematical books, he is propelled into a great exploration of the story of maths, from brilliant Greek thinkers like Archimedes and Pythagoras to the 17th-century genius Fermat.  Mr. Ruche decides that with the help of a talking, mathematically-minded parrot, he will use these books to teach Max, a deaf boy whose dysfunctional family lives with Mr. Ruche, the mysteries and wonders of numbers and shapes.  But soon it becomes clear that Mr. Ruche has inherited the library for reasons other than pure enlightenment, and, before he knows it, the household is caught up in a race to prevent the vital theorems from falling into the wrong hands.  Join Tween Primes to discuss this book and go on a delightful journey through the history of mathematics.
