While Team Savv-i The 10 Secrets of Cyberspace is getting out there in the hands of my readers, Casper is working on:
1 - The followup of The 10 Secrets, called Team Savv-i The Lippizan Stallions. The Team receive their first Quest from Zeno to clean up the Internet, where fake news is polluting his cyberworld like plastic in our oceans! I'm aiming for a May 2018 release.
2 - The first graphic novel in the series is called Team Savv-i The Net Trap. The graphic novels come before the Middle Grade adventure novel Team Savv-i The 10 Secrets of Cyberspace. Each graphic novel will playfully deal with relevant Internet issues for preteens and uses the same although slightly younger characters.
These 3 panels are from Team Savv-i The Net Trap, where Mia receives the latest VR and gets trapped as a partying Princess in the virtual world. Lucky for her, she has friends that will come to her rescue! I'm also aiming to release this by May 2018. Keep fingers crossed :)
Team Savv-i The 10 Secrets of Cyberspace now available in print anywhere books are sold.

This isn't another tome about heady concepts involved in digital ethics. Instead, Casper has created a rollicking read about digital citizenship, told as an adventure that should connect with Tweens everywhere. It provides a valuable, and fun, teaching tool.’

‘Team Savv-i takes the 9 elements of digital citizenship and brings the reader on an action packed adventure full of mystery and suspense. The characters don’t just talk about digital citizenship, they do it! As a mother and son digital citizenship team, we agree that Team Savv-i reminds us all that we learn best by doing things together. The ultimate goal is to empower our students to be the same person both on and offline and this is the Team Savv-i message.’

‘Team Savv-i is an action packed adventure and the twins at the center of all the action have to figure out how to solve the mystery. If you are looking for a book that will teach kids about making good decisions and being problem solvers online, this book is the one for you. They will also learn tips on being a good digital citizen.
The author, Casper Pieters, uses each chapter to explore ideas about digital identity. So, as kids are reading, they are learning an entire language for the internet and digital citizenship. Some of the topics are super complicated, but Pieters writes in a way that gets kids curious to know more.
What’s most interesting for me as a reader of this book is the kids are the heart of all the solutions. This book will keep your kids hooked and help them
understand their digital Future.
Two thumbs up for Team Savv-i!’
