Wesley suffers from bullying because of his non-conformist views and love of science. He creates a sustainable civilisation that blooms into a world with its own alphabet, language, food, clothing and games. “He told time by the stalk that he used as a sundial and had divided the day into eight segments… He’d adopted a new counting system as well, based likewise upon the number eight. His domain, home to many such innovations, he named ‘Weslandia’.”
