    Welcome to the Home for Wayward and Misbegotten Creatures, an institution run by evil Miss Carbunkle, a cunning villainess who believes her terrified young charges exist only to serve and suffer. Part animal and part human, the groundlings toil in classroom and factory, forbidden to enjoy anything regular children have, most particularly singing and music. For the Wonderling, an innocent-hearted, one-eared, fox-like eleven-year-old with only a number rather than a proper name - a 13 etched on a medallion around his neck - it is the only home he has ever known.

    Bekannt als Nummer Dreizehn lebt eine schüchterne Kreatur - halb Fuchs, halb Mensch - in einem Heim für missratene und abscheuliche Wesen. Unter dem grausamen Regime der High Hats muss er endlose Schikanen über sich ergehen lassen. Doch er hütet ein Geheimnis, dessen wahre Ausmaße ihm erst bewusst werden, als er sich mit dem Vogel Trixi anfreundet: Er kann Geräusche hören, die kein anderer wahrnimmt. Ehe er sich's versieht, wird er in Intrigen verwickelt, die nichts weniger als den Untergang der Musik zum Ziel haben.
