Overview

Meet Willy Smith-a computer whiz, web surfer supreme, and master of the latest techno-talk. But one day he responds to a mysterious instant message and, quicker than a mouse click, he's hurled into cyberspace to become WEB WILLY, CYBER- WARRIOR! Suddenly he and his cyber-pal Mouse are off in perilous pursuit of a fiendish virus. His mission: to save cyberspace from total destruction. To join Willy, just slip on your cybermask and press enter-if you dare! The action-packed story's computer-generated images leap from the page through technology pioneered especially for this book. When viewed with the naked eye, each is stunningly vivid. Then slip on the easy-to-assemble press-out cybermask and look again. Its clear lenses reveal thrilling details in virtual vision 3-D, a process that adds astonishing depth. With or without the mask, computer fans-novice to expert-will gasp at eye-popping scenes that pull them deep into cyberspace's surreal world. A glossary of basic computer techno-talk terms is included.

Web Willy, a computer genius, enters the virtual reality of cyberspace to do battle with a virus that threatens to destroy the Internet.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Porter
Web Willy, a Cyberspace explorer, is pulled into his computer to save the Internet from an evil virus. With the help of Mouse and some pixels, he is able to destroy the virus and restore power to the Webmaster and the Internet. The book includes a glossary, though many of the definitions are circular or incomplete. Techno-savvy kids will love the use of Techno-Talk throughout the book. The text is accompanied by colorful pictures that become 3-D when viewed through the mask included at the end of the book. The 3-D effects are impressive, though they make the text more difficult to read. This book will interest young computer users with the appeal of a Saturday morning cartoon, but will disappoint parents hoping to educate their children about the World Wide Web.
Kirkus Reviews
Internet jargon and capabilities, as presented by Willy, a basic computer nerd, who builds programs and surfs the Web: One day he finds himself sucked by a force out of real time, through his monitor, and into cyberspace. A computer mouse appears and guides him to the Webmaster, who tells Willy he has been summoned to exercise his programming skills to rid the Internet of a fiendish virus. Pixel pals emerge to do battle with body-snatched, morphing bytes that have gone renegade as Willy threads his way to the CPU. Once there, Willy encounters a rather hideous virus and dispatches it with, of all things, a bowl of lime Jell-o. The computer-generated illustrations are brought to life by assembling and donning an enclosed mask, intended to make the book a "virtual vision 3-D" experience. It's all gawky fun; it may also be educational. (glossary) (Picture book. 6-11)
