A young boy, Tineboy, is having trouble with his multiplication tables and the number seven. Bored in class one day, he falls asleep and dreams of a story told by his teacher about the number seven going mad. This leads to a world without the number seven and the confusion that comes from getting rid of a number. The schoolhouse bully and Tineboy’s own pet crow play important roles in his vivid daydream, full of intelligent wit and humor.
Bram Stoker (1847-1912) was an Irish writer of novels and short stories, most famous for his gothic horror novel Dracula. Although he wrote throughout his life while working as a personal assistant and theatre manager, he did not achieve much literary fame until after his death.

I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.
From the title I thought this was a horror story where seven people become insane, instead this is a fun little story about multiplication, excellent for children. I was not aware that Bram Stoker had written light funny stories. The narration is excellent with pleasantly cute character voices. At 30 minutes it is not worth a full credit but was worth the two bucks.
