The Person Controller

Could ordinary life ever be as fabulous as battling hostile mobs in Minecraft? Or fighting evil in Plants vs Zombies? Answer: yes it can – if you own a Person Controller! Twins Fred and Ellie are great at video games. Sadly, they’re not much good at other stuff, like football or dealing with bullies. Then they meet the Mystery Man, who sends them a video game controller. The weird thing is, it doesn’t seem to control any of their usual games. So – what does it control? Can you guess? The twins are about to play the best game EVER – which means finally calling the shots in life!
