Book Description

Dell and Emmelisa Planemaker have just returned from a space mission to follow their dad’s trail of light, and they are off on a new adventure!

Another strange-looking man turns up on the old computer warning them not to go back to Hardwareland, where they’d trained to become astronauts. Undaunted, the children cannot contain their curiosity.

When a group of criminals attempt to steal money from Mrs. Planemaker, Dell and Emmelisa set about learning how to stop them. They have a lot to learn. Back in Hardwareland, they attend cyber crime courses, take scuba diving lessons and undergo submersible pilot training. With all the learning and training behind them, the intrepid aquanauts are ready to begin their next mission: to fish out the cyber criminals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 4 Feb. 2013

Another fantastic story from Shelagh Watkins!

Firstly, I simply adore the way Shelagh creates names for the characters, Mr Wiz Kidd, Mr A. Leon Spaceman, Ann Aquanaut etc...

Any way, characters aside, this story once again involves the Planemaker kids Emmalisa and Dell. A mysterious message appears on the screen of the computer in Emmalisa's room, it threatens them and warns them not to go back to Hardwareland. Of course, they must go to find out what is happening and try to stop the evil plan that is unfurling which may ruin them both and their mother. While staying in the magical world of Hardwareland, where time is only a tiny fraction of time in the real world, the kids go to a virtual crime training course, a scuba diving course and a deep sea diving course.

I can't help but be absorbed into the story and even, secretly, hope that one day I'll get to go on adventures inside my computer. So much goes on in the story that before you know it you have finished and you are hoping that Shelagh will write a 3rd in the series. It's a fantastically written story that both adults and children can enjoy. You might even learn a thing or 2 from it, I know I did.
