Two best friends, Robert and Zach, are sucked into their computer in their classroom. They are transformed into super heroes: Captain Computerman and his sidekick, Mouseman. They soon discover that their favorite toy websites are being stolen. The evil Dr. Reken Stench is stealing the websites. After a great chase scene in the Mousemobile, a near-disastrous encounter with the Ripco Spendo Beam-O-Matic, and a fight scene, Dr. Stench is apprehended. Dr. Stench explains why he is stealing and the super heroes convert him into a friend. After meeting several computer parts, the super heroes discover a firewall. The firewall was put on the computer by Cody the Computer Repairman, who may be out to ageta the boys. After many adventures inside the computer, the story ends with the now back-to-normal friends, Robert, Zach and John (Dr. Stench, now clean smelling) leaving the classroom for the playground.

Adult Reviewer: Shirley Roe, Allbooks Reviews

Kids who love computers and web surfing will like this book where the inside of the computer becomes the setting for our heroes Capt. Computerman and Mouseman. Computer language is used throughout.

Zach and Robert, computer junkies are the main characters of this book. Mrs. Sleazydeezy Vestervinkle is their teacher. Bored with school and not very good students, they mysteriously get pulled into their computer. While in the computer the boys discover a plot by Dr. Reken Stench to steal all of the toy websites. They travel around in their Mousemobile trying to catch Dr. Stench.

The names of the characters are funny and the adventures of our heroes are amusing. They get into all kinds of trouble. As a fan of the Captain Underpants series, this book is very similar and just as funny.

There is a section of bloopers and a glossary of funny descriptions. The illustrations are very good and tell the story well.

In my opinion, boys ages 8-10 years would like this book.

I wondered how long it would be until kids books developed with new technology and were placed in the environs of the computer and the Internet. This is one such book.


Basically Zach and Robert, underachievers, love surfing the web. They don't do well in school one flunks the spelling test and the other is happy to get a D plus, which means he didn't flunk. Not exactly Rhodes scholars. They also have a child's distorted view of time as their teacher, Mrs. Sleazydeezy Vestervinkle, is "an old lady about 33 years old." What makes me at age 42? But like I said, a child's view of "old" is different from an adult's view.


The book is also PC (as in politically correct) or maybe it's tweaking the PC crowd? Captain Computerman begins to tell a blonde joke when Mouseman stops him with "Hey, you are going to make the blondes upset!" Then there's always "pick your nose .org," which I really dont need to know about.


Basically Zach and Robert get sucked into their new computer at school. It is inside the computer or are they on the "information superhighway?"-that the two boys learn about the nefarious (my word, not theirs) plot of Dr. Reken Stench to steal all favorite toy web sites. Can they catch the evil doctor? What will become of the boys?


Along the way the reader will have some bumps of humor. Page 39 ends with:
WARNING >>> WARNING >>> WARNING
The next pages will NOT be suitable for children under the age of 103 to view. Way too violent. Don't peek. Don't look! Don't EVEN think about it!
Of course you turn the page to "view" (see, even the nomenclature is computer-oriented) the following:
OH, DANG YOU LOOKED!!!
NOT A GOOD THING!!!
Continue on if you're brave enough!!!


You might even like the "glossary" at the back of the book. Well, hopefully you don't use those punny descriptions in any test. There is also a section of bloopers.
Overall this is an enjoyable book for children, especially boys, likely in second through fourth grade.

Title: The Adventures of Captain Computerman and His Sidekick Mouseman
In: The Saving of the Toy Websites

Author: Jim Conner

Illustrator: Marcus Hall

Robert and Zachhave been friends their whole lives they spend their spare time internet surfing on their favorite toy sites. So when the two boys get sucked into the computer, they turn into super heroes, Computerman and Mouseman. In the computer they have to face the evil Dr. Reken Stench because he is going to take all of the toy websites. It is all excitement for Robert and Zach to save the sites. This book has some humor. I like the fact that it included their thoughts.
This story is similar to the Capt. Underpants series because it was about two boys who get into trouble but was not as funny. A very similar book.

In my opinion, this book was lacking in detail, the illustrations were good and gave a good idea of what the characters look like. They look like computer animations. This book would be good for 9 11 years and the book is definitely more for boys. 3 or 5 lollipops.
