Rex Zero, King of Nothing


Rex Zero, King of Nothing Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In sixth grade now, the wildly imaginative Rex Zero and his friends hatch a plan to replace Miss Garr, the substitute teacher from hell, and Rex takes on the persona of none other than “Dr. Love.” Of course, events spin hilariously out of control. Miss Garrs cruel behavior is a mystery to Rex. But then, Rexs world is full of mysteries! Theres the beautiful woman in white. Why does she have a black eye? Theres the little black book filled with names. Who could it belong to? And why has Rexs father hidden a letter that begins: “Mein Liebchen”? Could all these things have something to do with the mystery of love? Underneath all of this is the age-old question of how to stand up and be a man. For if, as Rexs dad says, “a mans got to do what a mans got to do,” how does Rex know what to do and when to do it?

Delightfully eccentric characters, humorous scenes of well-intended plans gone awry, a finely crafted plot interwoven with serious themes about love and war—this new Rex Zero from Tim Wynne-Jones is a gem!
