During this time he began to write mathematics books for both teachers and children.

VLADIMIR ALEKSIC was born in Serbia and Montenegro and has a wealth of illustration experience. His style is often described as 'semi-realistic', as his illustrations have a clear comic book influence. He has worked for clients including DK, where he illustrated Pirate Attack! and Clash of the Gladiators. 


The series makes maths accessible and children enjoy discovering new facts such as the names of various jet fighters as they work through the maths problems.
