It's biology vs. technology

It's the future. Zane lives in a completely wired world, with completely wired parents. Technology has progressed so that every pet has a microchip in it that allows the pet to talk. Zane's happy about that. Until one day a strictly contraband wild animal -- a mole -- comes into his life. He smuggles it into his apartment -- and learns that the pets aren't actually saying what the chip is translating. In fact, they aren't happy that all animals have been domesticated. So they enlist Zane to help them fight back and ensure their freedom. This means he's going to have to enter a world he's never confronted before: Nature.

With wit and wisdom, award-winning author Chris Lynch takes middle-grade readers on a journey in which they'll unplug from technology, and plug into something even greater.

"This very funny book occasionally strikes notes of unexpected poignancy..." — Booklist

"The author manages to keep the reader chuckling as he skewers such topics as work-obsessed parents, electronic Big Brother and greyhound racing." — Kirkus Reviews
