Not again! Jessica and Matt thought their adventures in cyberspace were through, until Jessica's mom takes away all her fun computer games and makes Jessica and Matt play the sappiest, most boring online game ever. Neither Jess nor Matt ever dreamed they'd be sucked right into Granny Goose's Fun Farm! When they get there, they discover that something's not quite right at the farm-someone's using the nasty robot henchmen, the Yo-Bots, to control TV! Faced with a future filled with nothing but boring TV shows, Jessica and Matt decide to free the airwaves. But can they escape the farm in time, or will they be stuck in syndication forever? Readers may never look at TV and video games the same after checking out this hilarious novel.

Eric A. Kimmel is the author of another virtual adventure, Website of the Warped Wizard, and many other humorous original tales, including the Caldecott Honor-winning Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins.Review:
"When most people hear 'large-print book,' they immediately think senior citizen. But large-print editions of popular children's books -- from the powerhouse Harry Potter series to timeless classics like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer -- are now making their way onto the shelves of the Children's Department at the Canton Library. . . . Although large-print editions are targeted to the visually-impaired or dyslexic child, they can also be used by standard-vision readers. So Kershner [Children's librarian at the Canton Public Library] has decided against creating a special section in the Children's Department (as exists in the Adult Department) opting instead to intersperse large-print books on the shelves with the regular print versions of the same titles."

"Thorndike Press has helped me not only find books I want to read, but they also look like regular books. That's important when you're a kid and you can only read Large Print, you want your book to look like all the other books. I'm reading a lot more now that we have found Thorndike Press."
-- Jim Bernardin, Islamorada, FL
"Everyone loves to read, there's nothing like curling up with a good book. We're a reading family, so when our son was diagnosed with Stargardt's Disease and only able to read Large Print, it was particularly difficult. Books on tape are wonderful but they don't fill the void of actually reading a good story. Large Print books have been around a long time for older people, but to find a good novel for a young person in Large Print began to feel nearly impossible. The books that Thorndike Press publishes have truly made a difference in my son's reading life. He can enjoy current novels as well as some of the classics that he missed reading when it became too difficult with regular print."
