She’s a spunky little girl obsessed with electronic devices. Dot knows a lot. She knows how to tap… to swipe… to share… and she pays little attention to anything else, until one day Dot sets off on an interactive adventure with the world surrounding her. Dot’s tech-savvy expertise, mingled with her resourceful imagination, proves Dot really does know lots and lots.

Randi Zuckerberg will also publish Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives with HarperCollins in November, looking at some of the same themes for adults. Here’s more about the author:
