9780130805249: The boy with square eyes

When Charlie's eyes turn square from watching television and everything else starts looking square too, he cures himself by stimulating his mind with books, puzzles, pictures, and nature.

From Publishers Weekly:

Like The Day the TV Blew Up (see above), this moral tale, subtitled "A Tale of Televisionitis," pokes fun at the TV viewing habits of the young. Charlie's eyes (and vision) become square through a surfeit of TV watching. Clever color illustrations show the world as Charlie sees it: everything from toothpaste to tomatoes to his own tears are cube-shaped. The only cure is to unplug the TV and read, draw pictures, do puzzles, "look at the sky and wonder why." Although the story is pointedly didactic, it is handled with a light touch, and the well-rendered pictures carry off the farce. As good-humored social commentary, this may not convert TV addicts into born-again readers, but it should provoke chuckles among the target audience and their parents. Many in the audience will find themselves nodding in recognition. Ages 8-10.
