|A children's fantasy novel written in Russian. I have not been able to find much about it but Rob Milson says:
Three children travel to Karlikania, an enchanted land populated by numerals. Here they befriend a slightly naughty zero (zeros are the babies of this magical country) and spend 3 wonderful days exploring mathematical ideas. Along the way they learn about infinity and the danger of dividing by zero, the laws of arithmetic, prime numbers and the sieve of Eratosthenes, the history of the number system, divisibility tests, and many many other ideas.

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the Amazon.com page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks! -Alex
