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.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Jeanne Gowen Dennis
Located in: St. Augustine, Florida
Submitted: November 09, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  As a mother, grandmother, aunt, former children's choir director, Sunday school and homeschool teacher, and one of eight children myself, I have learned a lot about children firsthand. MATT'S FANTASTIC ELECTRONIC COMPUSONIC is my seventh book for children. After almost thirty years in beautiful Colorado, I recently moved to lovely Florida. My husband and I will celebrate thirty years of marriage in 2007. I'd love for you to visit my website, which is www.barefootonholyground.com. There you will find two online quarterly magazines (e-zines) called BAREFOOT PATH and BAREFOOT FOR KIDS. The mission of BAREFOOT FOR KIDS is to help children live an active life, loving God. I also have a section called Homeschool Cove with information and encouragement for homeschoolers. You can find more information about me as a writer and speaker there, too.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  So many children and adults today are addicted to electronic media that they don't even seem to notice that they are missing out on real life. I used humor and exaggeration to draw attention to the problem in a friendly and fun way while trying to inspire them to choose the better way.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope this story will inspire readers of all ages to live an active life while loving God and that it will encourage them not to let entertainment or addictions of any kind steal away real life.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Children's authors I enjoy include C. S. Lewis, Kate Seredy, Johanna Spyri, and A. A. Milne. I love beautiful picture book art, especially in watercolor, oil, or pastels.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Parents have told me that children as young as four and as old as sixteen have enjoyed this book (although twelve-year-olds tend to read it on the sly).
