Synopsis

This is a humorous and relevant book about Ringo who prefers to spend his day behind a screen. Ringo's dad does not think this is a good idea - he will get completely cross-eyed in the end. If Ringo gets 50 cents every time his dad says that sentence, then he'd soon be able to buy an entire house! But Ringo is not rich and he is completely fed up with listening to his dad repeating the same sentence day in and day out.

When Ringo asks his dad what he should do instead, the dad has a lot of good ideas. At least from an adult's point of view. But are they as good from the point of view of a child like Ringo?
