Because Romantic Math Allegories Are Good Any Time of Year
So . . . I wanted to post some lovely little romantic thingie here on Valentine's Day, but I couldn't find anything worthy . . until now. Here it is: the Oscar-winning animated short, "The Dot and the Line," based on the book by Norton Juster (yes, of "Phantom Tollbooth" fame -- hey, I even have the proper kidlit reference with this thing) and directed by Chuck Jones.
I don't think a cartoon can get a better pedigree than that. You'll need to turn on your computer's speakers to understand what's going on -- or just find the book, and read along. Enjoy!
