The first-ever novel by Dr Zargle
On his first day at his new school Ezra is given an endless list of arithmetic problems to work out. The maths teacher, Mr. Bignall, is hopeless, dull and boring. But something’s not right.
On day two Ezra and the class find out the truth. They experience adventures that catapult them across time and space. They watch the first humans use the first numbers for some pretty disgusting things. They witness the raw madness of superstitious people and watch Pythagoras behave like a gangster ‘eliminating’ anyone he doesn’t like.
And the best thing of all? Her Majesty the Queen is one of Ezra’s classmates!
