Young Reader Reaction: We tried reading this with our 8-year old many times. She didn't like the pictures, sos he wouldn't read the book.

Adult Reader Reaction: The first six pages to introduce the characters, and after a short break we get four more pages of characters. That's a lot of time spent describing pieces of a computer, rather than telling a story. The author gives them "human" traits (Joy, the girl plays with dolls) to tell the story itself.

Pros: If you're looking for a book to introduce computer terms to kids, this is a good selection.

Cons: It is not clear what the author is trying to accomplish. Is this a story about bullying or a story about Internet adventures? Because of the confusion, all the computer-related names and terms come off as puns that the parents will get, but the kids won't.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow. This is a unique book for kids who like computers and want stories with computer-type characters in them.

Educational Themes: The author loads the book with computer-related words, which can be helpful in introducing tech terms to kids. The story itself is about bullying, choices, and consequences. There are several places where you can stop and talk about what might happen or what your child should do in dangerous situations like this.
