Product description

Wonderful rhyme and rhythm will pull the reader into this delightful story about priorities. Matt, the star of his baseball team, receives a pocket-size electronic game for his birthday. Immediately, the fantasy game makes him forget about everything else . . . even his cake. For the rest of the weekend, Matt thinks of nothing but his Compusonic. It even invades his dreams. He can't pay attention in church and his lunch blurs into the game. By the time the championship game begins on Monday afternoon, Matt is hopelessly lost in the world of his Compusonic . . . and playing baseball rather hopelessly as a result. It takes a crunchtime decision for Matt to decide that he prefers real adventures with his friends and that it's not good to let anything come before God in his life.Uses familiar and realistic ideas stretched just a touch to be absolutely hilarious Shows kids what happens when our priorities get out of orderFabulous, original illustrations
