About the book

Here’s the Goodreads blurb: What would you do?

You buy a used tablet. It has an app whose icon is a plain black square. You have no idea what it does.

Do you dare run it?

If you’re a boy of 12, of course you do.

Norm does. Then his life goes crazy. He visits times and places he never imagined, with excitement and danger everywhere. He meets angry Bedouins, revenge-minded ship captains, knife-throwing Gypsies, and gun-totin’ cowboys. Plus a beautiful girl.

He’s lucky to have Burny, his dog, companion, and guardian. Also his conscience and voice of reason.

But the mysterious app has a dark side…
A children’s book for adults — the first of five!
For ages 8-108 (strictly enforced)

With 23 illustrations by Mindy Alper,
