For anyone in IT who has children,
This review is from: Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House? (Paperback)
First it should be noted that this is a very creative marketing strategy about a Microsoft product. That is important to understand because it is not a children's book with a heavy emphasis on product placement.
So, with that clearly understood, let's review the book. I found it to be very funny, and my kids loved it. I work for Microsoft and while I am not in an IT role the book helped me explain to my very young kids some of what Daddy does at work.
The writing is clever and clearly articulates what the product does. If you are in IT and watch your kids eyes glaze over when you explain what you do, then buy them a copy and have fun!
As a children's book it will not win any awards for literary excellence or social commentary, but as a fun and educational book for your kids that can be had for the price of a nice cup of copy, it is perfect!
This is a well done and very funny story about Servers. Who would have thought a sentence like that would ever exist?

Mommy, where did our rock solid Ubuntu server go? Why the heck did you replace it with that MS garbage?

Mommy, don't tell me you've forgotten what a server is again!
