Professor One Hoot
x1

Hello, I’m Professor One Hoot. I am a scientist and I work in Berlin. Of course I love ze number one. It is a very clever, sophisticated and scientific number, especially for me for ze pure, emotional reason that ze number one stands for Unity, of which my beloved, once divided city, Berlin, is a shining example to ze world. I believe too zat science holds ze answer to all things but you have to look very closely for zes answers and keep a very open mind. Remember, ze universe is much, much stranger in reality zan people think!

Madame Two Moos
x2

Hello Darlings! My name is Madame Two Moos. I live in Darwin, Australia and I just love the number Two. I guess I’m one of life’s happy cows really because I like to keep things simple: just do everything in Twos darlings and you'll be fine: Eating - I’ve got Two Tummies! - talking, dancing, counting, marrying! ‘It takes Two to Tango Darling’ I always say to my friends when they get themselves in a stew, always blaming someone else for all their problems. Ouch!, how they make simple things complicated by not searching for the other side of everything.

Sister Three Baas
x3

Hello, I’ve been working in hospitals since I was 16 and have just been promoted! My name is Sister Three Baas and working in a hospital means I have seen many things: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and so often has one followed the other, that I now think of everything in 3s. For example, don’t all stories have a beginning, a middle and an end? See what I mean? It's not that I love 3 so much as I feel that that's just the way things are. Now I’ve found out that knowledge itself is discovered in three ways, through Logic, Science and Dreaming! I want to find out more about 3. Let’s do it together!

Bonjour. Je suis Rooster FOUR-Midable, pronounced 4-mi-daahhh-ber-le. I am a Canadian Mountie.

People say zat I am unconquerable in my search for ze truth in zes matters and in my job, defending ze realm and it’s glorious values: “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité”. In fact I love history so much zat I have a little obsession with Time itself, ze Fourze Dimension, and zerefore everyzing to do with ze Number 4. I think zat you will find it fascinating too when you listen to all my stories about ze number 4.

Hold up! My name is Porky Five Bellies - no prizes for guessing why! I bet you’d be surprised how good life can be as a pig! I don’t mind my nick-name or what some people fink of me, ‘cos I know different. Lots of people love pigs just as they are. I’m proud to be a Pig and to be called 5 Bellies. In fact the number 5 has become so special to me, that I’ve now found out all about it. I mean have you ever thought why it is that just about all amphibians, reptiles and mammals have five fingers or toes on each side? Why Five? I’ll tell you the answer in one of my 12 stories about the number 5.

Tiny Seven Squeeks
x7

Buongiourno. My name is Tiny Seven Squeeks but I am not tiny and I don’t squeak. It is an ironic name. I am known throughout Sicilia for my quiet, calm, but tough attitude to life and business. I had to learn the hard way and now I say “Dreams are for when you are older, wiser or in heaven. Life is for business. For now.” I am proud of my fishing family because we were poor but we saw beautiful things and ate wonderful fish suppers, especially on the Feast of 7 Fishes, which we have celebrated for many centuries on 24th December. My stories about 7 talk of myths and magic from when the world began.

Bugsy Eight Hops
x8

Hi, I live in Beijing where last Olympics were opened 8 seconds, 8 minutes past 8 pm on 8 August 2008 because eight is very lucky number in China! I too was born 8 seconds, 8 minutes past 8 pm on 8 August, in the year of Rabbit (’87), in room 8, of Beijing Xuanwu Hospital, at 8-A Wanming Road, on 8th floor. So I must be doubly lucky rabbit with all those eights and Year of Rabbit - which is lucky year too! Of course my name is Bugsy Eight Hops and all my stories about eight will teach you how lucky people, and especially Rabbit people, create own luck, as well as having a knack for being lucky.

Duke Nine Bills
x9

Howdy y’all? My name is Duke, I said Duke, Nine Bills. I come from Nashville, US of A. Why 9 Bills? I hear ya say. ‘Cos I got me 9 bills -  duck bill, dollar bills, Treasury bills, bar bills, shopping bills, mortgage bills, tax bills, doctor’s bills, and last but by no means least, my ex wives’ d-i-v-o-r-c-e bills. But, hey, ya only live once don’t ya? Folks say I gotta happy-go-lucky personality and a tabloid view o’ the world but that don’t bother me none, see? The only thing I don’t quite get, what with all the blessings the Lord gave me, is why can’t I keep me a good lady wife! So perhaps y’all can tell me if you listen to my stories.

Goatee Ten Beards
x10

Hello, my name is Goatee Ten Beards. I live on the roof of the world, high up in the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal. I take my name from the many beards, roughly 10, on my body, especially the two types of hair on my tummy which are used to make beautiful Pashmina shawls worn by women everywhere. For this and many other reasons, I love the number ten. Of course living so high-up in the world I see many things very far away, but this is also true if you live a full spiritual life, seeking out your mind’s highest places. So my stories will illuminate 12 paths towards your mind’s highest places.

Inspector Eleven
x11

Bonjour mes amis. Yes, it’s Inspector Eleven, at your service! I live in Brussels, and work on unsolved mysteries for the EEC. 11 is the first number you can’t count on your hands, the missing digit, the unknown factor, the vital clue. I am famous for saying “we must search for the missing factor”. I am curious, intelligent and forensic and aware of a missing factor in my own character: I cannot feel emotion. So I can be mischievous with people, un peu, to see what makes them tick, often guessing their next move. In my stories about 11, I search for the true meaning and source of emotions.

Lord Twelve Tales
x12

Hello, I’m Lord Twelve Tales and I live in an old castle in Ireland. I love the number 12, because it was the official distance - “12 score Law” - between hare and hound, in ‘Coursing’ races many years ago - but sure wouldn’t I not be here if my family hadn’t survived all those races! Which gives me very 'special' genes I think! And many a long tale to tell! So now, if you read my ‘12 Tales about 12’, not only will you know everything there is to know about 12 but you will also see how my family survived all those races, by using all their ‘Intelligences’. You can become wise too!
