Reg, a tiger cub, has a hard time keeping up academically with the other kids his age. He’s been trying for three years and just can’t seem to learn to read. He stutters, has memory, attention and processing disorders. Now he needs Special Education. Reg meets Pal, a sleek state-of-the-art Tablet PC that tells him of a teacher on the Internet who can help him learn to read. Hence the partnership begins as two friends and an elusive rat named Tar, work through the steps required to power-up and login to the Internet.
After an introduction to the power switch, icons, and the input devices, Reg experiences trouble filtering out the class in the background and the rat, Tar, who taunts for Reg’s attention. Reg experiences sensory overload as his friend Pal tries to teach him too many things at one time. But Pal assures him that all he has to do is ask, and he will slow down and take things one step at a time.
