About the Book

The Wood Wide Web is a ghost town. No one goes out or talks to each other, and the children hide in their tree houses all day long. Professor Plano, Zed and Zee get there to find that Cybugs have infested the town. They bully with their words, send nasty emails and go after the children for using the Clear Vision Recipe. Lord Myopic must be behind this! The trio need to hurry to help their friends, but how?

About the Series

Suitable for emerging readers, The Plano Adventures series are fun early chapter books on the exciting adventures of Professor Plano as he defeats Lord Myopic with the help of his adorable twin sidekicks. Myopia, or short-sightedness, device dependency and lack of outdoor activity are public health concerns worldwide. The stories from this series are based on scientific research and were written specially to empower young readers to tackle the adverse effects of excessive device use.
