History of science professor Tahir Baturay has been trying for years to unravel the secrets of the Egyptian pyramids. However, despite all his attempts, he could not make any significant progress. On his last trip, he is accompanied by Cenk Demirbilek, who solves codes by smelling the numbers.

As you travel with them, you will learn about ancient Egyptian history and step into a world of mathematics that you have never heard of.

A mysterious journey awaits you on the trail of numbers.

- The book was prepared to break the prejudices of young readers who stay away because they do not like mathematics, and its story is structured accordingly.

Beyond that, I don't really know anything about it as I do not read Turkish, the only language in which it has been published.

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.
