The Boy Who Hated Numbers
About the book
Rebmun’s hatred toward numbers is his strategy to catch his parents’ attention. Knowing they want him to excel in mathematics, Rebmun defies them by refusing to learn anything about numbers. Eventually, the boy develops a real abhorrence to numbers. He gets annoyed by his pet bird’s daily recitation of numbers in waking him up even if it’s not a school day so he gets the bird out of its cage and throws it out of the window. Feeling guilty, Rebmun goes out to look for his pet. His search leads him to a dying forest where he meets the bird-eating giant who captures all the birds in the forest. Rebmun wants the birds freed – the prize if he can beat the giant in counting numbers. The boy outsmarts the giant with one simple trick. The Boy Who Hated Numbers offers a positive message of persistence and motivation. It deals with various character traits children would love to adopt.read more
