9780803722859: Web Willy in Cyberspace

Meet Willy Smith--a computer whiz, web surfer supreme, and master of the latest techno-talk. But one day he responds to a mysterious instant message and, quicker than a mouse click, he's hurled into cyberspace to become WEB WILLY, CYBER- WARRIOR! Suddenly he and his cyber-pal Mouse are off in perilous pursuit of a fiendish virus. His mission: to save cyberspace from total destruction. To join Willy, just slip on your cybermask and press enter--if you dare! The action-packed story's computer-generated images leap from the page through technology pioneered especially for this book. When viewed with the naked eye, each is stunningly vivid. Then slip on the easy-to-assemble press-out cybermask and look again. Its clear lenses reveal thrilling details in virtual vision 3-D, a process that adds astonishing depth. With or without the mask, computer fans--novice to expert--will gasp at eye-popping scenes that pull them deep into cyberspace's surreal world. A glossary of basic computer techno-talk terms is included.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Internet jargon and capabilities, as presented by Willy, a basic computer nerd, who builds programs and surfs the Web: One day he finds himself sucked by a force out of real time, through his monitor, and into cyberspace. A computer mouse appears and guides him to the Webmaster, who tells Willy he has been summoned to exercise his programming skills to rid the Internet of a fiendish virus. Pixel pals emerge to do battle with body-snatched, morphing bytes that have gone renegade as Willy threads his way to the CPU. Once there, Willy encounters a rather hideous virus and dispatches it with, of all things, a bowl of lime Jell-o. The computer-generated illustrations are brought to life by assembling and donning an enclosed mask, intended to make the book a ``virtual vision 3-D'' experience. It's all gawky fun; it may also be educational. (glossary) (Picture book. 6-11) -- Copyright ©1998, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
