This is the story of Gianenzo. He’s just turned eleven and he’s 18 cm tall. He’s first in the junior rankings in: chess, drawing, singing, solfège, arithmetic, piano and chemistry. Mind you, he shares those top spots with his two sworn enemies. The genius who was king of the hill through the third year of nursery school has had to contend with two giants at his same level for five years now: the magnetic Luigifausta and the unflappable Pancraziomaria. Now the exit exams for primary school are looming and none of the three contenders seems willing to give an inch. Who will walk off with the gold for being the class grind?
