Listened to this one with my girls - they enjoyed it. It's fantasy - a kid gets sucked into a website about Amadans - little creatures who can paralyze humans, but usually only paralyze to stop bad people from doing bad things. But some rogue Amadans are on the loose and the main characters can help...I like the Irish brogue fo the reader, but didn't love his voices all the time

This book is meant for 8-10 year olds and was a bit silly and unbelievable. The children were able to overcome evil and succeed while being good so I guess it is a good book for kids who enjoy fantasy. It's definitely no Harry Potter.

Jimmy, his neighbor, Nita, and Jimmy's granddad get pulled into an alternate universe:, via a computer screen...this tale is a bit predictable but still could be because I listened to it on CD. Hugh Lee did a great job reading.
