Cover Text: It's challenging, exciting, and educational! This book contains 20 stories and over 50 programs that can be used on Apple, Atari, Timex, Commodore or other home computers. So simple to understand, even an eight-year-old can program the computer--and become absorbed in an exciting story at the same time. THE MYSTERY AND ADVENTURE COMPUTER STORYBOOK is loaded with clues that the child programs into the computer. He is rewarded with exciting graphics (maps, mazes, coded messages) that will unravel the sequence of mysterious events. These stories combine text and computer programs to create a variety of fun, interesting plots. Programs that are simple enough for an eight-year-old, stories challenging enough for a twelve-year-old--that's how the MYSTERY AND ADVENTURE COMPUTER STORYBOOK introduces your child to the wonders of the computer and keeps him interested in reading.

The authors, Stuart and Donna Paltrowitz, are the creators of the Mystery Maze and Close Escapes series of computer software.
