Do you like being bored for several hours at a time? Then find another book. Do you like to learn by reading endless techno-jargon? Well, there are lots of books in the computer section that will help you nap (either that or you can use them as a door stop). Consider yourself a dummy? Then you'll be over-stimulated by this book.

What's that you say? You don't like vanilla ice cream? You'd rather have some fun? Want a little E-N-T-E-R-T-A-I-N-M-E-N-T in your learning? Then take a Journey to the Center of the Internet.

Animator Jesse Flores and author Pamela Rice Hahn have teamed up to create a brilliant techno-tale in the spirit of classic science fiction novel. While Journey to the Center of the Internet is perfect for the easily bored teenager, it may also be approproiate for adults who click through 500 cable channels in less then a minute or who like to read while driving their car (just kidding).

Here are some of the attractions you will find inside:

  • Over 40 animations taking you inside the "stuff" that makes the internet run.
  • A really fun sci-fi novel with a full cast of characters like Dr. F and Beta Boy Bert
  • Learn why the phrase "either I'm hallucinating, or that hub just talked to me" is funny
  • Read definitive proof that Al Gore did not invent the Internet
