Milo is thrilled to be starting at the country’s most elite secondary school. But it soon becomes clear to him that something sinister is going on in this place. The principal, Dr Pummelcrush, has an agenda that has very little to do with education.
When Milo stumbles across a bright and colourful secret garden and meets its joyous gardener Ursula, he and his friends start to learn a whole new way of thinking – called philosophy.
But how on earth can a bunch of kids use thinking skills to resist Pummelcrush’s evil project and save children from being zombified?
