Award-winning children’s author Joan Holub has penned over seventy books for young audiences in her decades-spanning career. In Zero the Hero, Holub offers a humorous and lighthearted look at one of math’s most overlooked, yet essential, figures—the number zero. All the other numbers scoff at Zero’s value, but as soon as one of them gets into trouble, guess who lands on the scene to save the day!

    " This one is for two different audiences. The first level is the basic story. Then for older kids and adults all the smaller speech bubbles and secondary text will provide more entertainment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Laura Salas | 2/10/2014

    " Very funny story about the trials and tribulations of Zero, who wants to be a hero. Nobody thinks he's important, but when he leaves, things start to fall apart. Number puns abound, and Zero rescues all the other numbers from Roman gladiators! So creative and outlandish! And Zero finally gets to be a hero at the end. "
