It is a CD, CD ROM and comes with a comic book. The cartoons are really well drawn, but the story ends on a cliffhanger. The story is about a bad guy called Evel Beetle, who wants the kids to rebel and not submit to authority which will give him control of the city. Five kids and a robot are chosen by E the janitor to stop Evel Beetle doing this. It is a mixture of story and music. The music is a mixture of pop and rap, a bit like Jump5 and The Tribe. The last song is a rap of what happened in the story. I am really looking forward to Volume 2 to see what happens next. And as a Mum I am impressed by the story line, the ease with which it was told and the up-frontness on the songs. A good buy for kids in their early teens, or younger, and congrats to producers Matt Bronleewe (Rebecca St James, Natalie Imbruglia) and Jeremy Bose (Across The Sky, Jennifer Paige) for creating something with true teen appeal.
