**STARRED REVIEW** 
"Terrific case study on the power of a big idea to work profound changes in our lives."

— Kirkus Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Accessible, occasionally funny, and always thoughtful, this speedy but thorough trip through time is a must for budding scientists." 

— School Library Journal

"Brown’s signature watercolor illustrations keep the tone light and lively, and end matter comprising a timeline, biographical note, sources, author’s note, and al-Khwarizmi’s ever-so-useful “A Bit about Binary” addendum makes this report-ready for kids who appreciate the good nonfiction in the graphic novel shelves." 

— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
