[This Russian children's novel] is about the titular character (who
appears in the other books [by Levshin]), sailing from the A bay through
arithmetical, algebraical and geometrical seas, learning about
convergent series, conic sections, integrals and a lot more.
The beloved books by Levshin do not seem to have been translated into English, but can be read for free in Russian at lib.rus.ec.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
