'The year is 1999 and David is in Year 6 at school. One day, during a very boring lesson, he is getting into trouble from the teacher when BAM! He suddenly finds himself in 2999 - and everyone is calling him Zoltan.
'Zoltan's father is a brilliant scientist and his experiment has caused Zoltan and David to exchange places - and milleniums.
'It appears that it has been hundreds of years since people could read and write. The world of 2999 is completely run by sound activated computers. In some ways, this is wonderful - but in other ways it is causing problems for the people of 2999 and they badly want to learn to read so they can access all the knowledge of past generations.
'David is the answer to their problems.
'But David has problems, too! The governor in 2999 is threatened by David's literacy and will stop at nothing to secure his powerful position. David must fight for his life before he can return to 1999.'
