Esmé d’Arc was a zero. She had been a zero for a very, very long time. Until one day – with the help of her friends –that all finally changed …

Within a satisfying framework of rhythm and narrative refrains, a smattering of more difficult words challenge and stimulate the young reader. A wonderful book for children who feel left out or on the margins, or who simply enjoy language.
