An exciting fantasy adventure about a video game that comes to life, which also makes readers think what it's like to be an endangered animal.
A live animal leaping out of a video game? Unbelievable. And yet there it is in Macka's lap: soft and smelly, alert and terrified, like a real animal; but also glowing with strange energy.
Can she get it back into the game alive? And - if she goes in herself, can she get out?
