    This takes "surfing the web" to a whole new level

    1-2-3...and we're on! No, I mean...we're in! In the World Wide Web, of course. Ashley & Austin Webster actually know how to get inside the internet; you know, that everyday, commonplace excursion of walking around web pages, falling through links, and landing in a whole new situation. Well, okay...maybe it isn't such a commonplace thing though, because odd as it seems, very few people know how to do it. Up until now, the Webster kids have only met one other person who can take these "commonplace" excursions...Mattie Blankenskrean, a woman who is attempting to wipe anything about the Bible off the internet. But like previously stated, that was up until now, because right now is a different story, which means that someone else is running around the internet too and they're up to no good.

    In addition to that, Austin scampered off into the web, with his friend (Drew), getting them both lost and their way home is blocked. What's worse is that the web has storms in its forecast. Let me tell you, you've never experienced storms like this before...these are filled with spam; you know, useless advertisements, fake promises...that stuff. It screams out at you and overcomes you like a flowing river would and knocks you down, which makes it impossible to get out of this junk until it passes. Just FYI, if someone yells "SPAM!" then you better RUN!!

    So, back to this situation about Austin & Drew living the rest of their lives on the internet...the only way they can get back to Normal, Illinois, is if Austin's sister (Ashley) can find his laptop, back in real life. Only problem is that there's bigger storms going on in Illinois--TORNADOES, to be exact. Ashley will have to brave it out to survive!

    The only question left is: Are YOU brave enough to go on one of the most outrageous World Wide Web adventures ever?

    Another Good One!

    As an adult, I got tickled by the spam floods. As a person connected with young people, I see the added tension of mystery and suspense pulling the kids into this edition of Hyperlinkz. One of my reluctant-reader friends is having a ball with these stories. His mother is astounded!

    Cool story

    I want the first two books for Christmas now. I loved these books (I read 3 and 4.) They have cool twists and turns and aren't stupid or boring. I learned about John Wycliff and had no idea how many people in the world had no Bible in their language. I felt bad when I read that. I also felt bad when they killed John Wycliff. I never knew people did stuff like that to Christians. I learned stuff by reading this story and didn't know I learned it because it was fun.

    Oh, no! They're at it again!

    Austin and Ashley Webster, brother and sister web surfers are on another adventure...this time one with a touch of danger. Enjoy this fourth story in the HyperLinkz series. Highly recommended (even for an adult with a young heart).

    Spam Alert

    Delightfully entertaining and informative. In this fourth book of the Hyperlinkz series, Mr. Elmer has managed to weave the Word of God and History in a unique and exciting manner. As the World Wide Websters hyperlink from adventure to adventure, your child or grandchild will feel as though he or she is right there in that amazing world with them. As a grandmother and substitute teacher, I highly recommend this book.

    Web slinging fun

    Austin takes his best friend on a wild ride through the internet where they must avoid spam avalanches as they try to figure out a way to get back to Normal. Meanwhile, Ashley has to find a way to recover Austin's misplaced laptop--the only means of getting Austin and Drew back!--but Tucker Campbell stands in her way . . . again. A page turning ride through the internet that will have your children wanting to be Internauts when they grow up. :)

    Hold on tight!

    Elmer has done it again in book four of this series that takes the reader on hair-raising adventures where the past meets the present on the Internet. In this episode, we are entertained and educated regarding many of our great Oxford graduates who have impacted our lives. Elmer's responsible approach to sufring evokes a desire to learn more. A must read for all ages.
