Description

Award-winning children's author Joan Holub has penned over 70 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!

Professional reviews

"L.J. Ganser animatedly narrates this story about nothing. Zero wants to prove that he's not a doughnut or a Fruit Loop but a hero. But it's not until the Roman numerals confront the counting numbers that Zero finally gets his chance to reveal "the power of nothing." Ganser's exuberant performance, filled with inflection and energy, brings a sense of old-time radio to a story that teaches about numbers, counting, and self-esteem. Ganser's clear voice and strong pacing bring out the competition between the numbers, and his inflections mimic vintage celebrities like Mae West and children's television shows like "Underdog." Ganser's exhilarating reading makes this short listening experience appealing to children and adults alike. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
