Who would have guessed that the seemingly mild-mannered dot who holds our internet addresses together actually has a riotous secret life of its own? What is it, exactly, that it gets up to when we turn our computers off? Renowned illustrator Ralph Steadman is just the person to show us. In this madcap adventure, little Dot, setting off to take tea with its good friend the Duchess, happens to run afoul of the mustachioed Duke of Bogshott and his White Army . . . at which point things get seriously weird, with a plot involving terrifically epic battles, wedding invitations, downhill rollerblading, and inky socks. In Steadman's silly, anarchic paintings, little Dot runs wild—and invites the reader along for the ride.
