Find out which fractions have the biggest bottoms! Discover what a vulgar fraction is! See what makes Pongo McWhiffy a mathematical freak! Travel to Planet Mean to discover how averages can be absolutely revolting! And shudder as Blade Boccelli and his gang cause an enormous explosion when they start messing about with maths…
