Yes, it’s true. Some kids would (gasp!) rather play video games than read a book. Thankfully, there’s now a book that fulfills two of kids’ favourite pastimes – playing on a screen and reading an awesome story – with Danny in a Newfangled World. A chapter book for 7- to 10- year-old boys and girls, it weaves a cautionary tale about the internet in a zany sci-fi adventure.
Ten-year-old Danny Lenesky can’t imagine anything more fun in the whole world than playing on his computer. That is, until he gets sucked right into it and lands smack in the middle of a video game.
And that’s when the fun really starts…
The series continues in the soon-to-be-released sequel, Saving Ivan.
