Imagine sitting at your computer and then -- nothing.  This is sort of what is going on in Flinkwater, Iowa, home of the largest manufacturer of Articulated Computerized Peripheral Devices.  If you own a robot, chances are it came from Flinkwater.  And now something is going terribly wrong with these devices.  People who use them are turning into mental vegetables.  Ginger Crump coins the expression that they are bonked.  When her own father is bonked, Ginger sets out to find out what is going on. And as if people being bonked is not bad enough, throw in a talking dog and even a zombie.
