Aussie Bites Pop!

Ahh, a book about being 10, hating your teacher and complaining about girl germs! This is a story about a young boy, Jack, who wishes to discover why a weasel would go "pop" in the children's rhyme "Pop goes the weasel". After deciding that it probably doesn't relate to flatulence, Jack decides to search for his answer on the Net.

With his curiosity in tow he accidentally conjures up a cyber weasel, named Pop, from the depths of cyberspace. This is where the fun starts. Pop plans to enjoy himself and has a hankering for movies, PlayStation games and popcorn. And the amount of mischief the little weasel brings is enough to keep Jack on his toes. The colourful antics of the weasel and the mishaps of the intensely curious Jack, set against a backdrop of frustrated teachers, firmly plant this Internet adventure in a world to which kids can relate.

While the build-up and search for an answer was good, the ending was a little disappointing. And, unfortunately, the illustrations seem underdeveloped, whereas they could have complemented the story well. Certainly a book for computer buffs in the upper primary grades.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
