      Illustrated in black-and-white. He played the game and out they came!
    To escape the endless chores on his aunt's chicken farm, Fred plays his computer's virtual reality game, Dumb. Playing Dumb, Frederick becomes Sir Frederick, the Fearless Knight battling alien forces. But these aliens look suspiciously like the plucked chickens in his aunt's deep freezer. Is this for real, or does Fred have feathers on his virtual brain? Discover the answer in this hysterical tour de force about the power of a boy's imagination and what happens when virtual reality gets really out of hand.
