A novel idea: Dot Robot has its own secret website


It was about a month ago when we received a game tip about the web site doyouknowanysecrets.com, which was found in the book Dot Robot by Jason Bradbury. In the context of the novel, which is geared towards a younger demographic, the web site is discovered by one of the protagonists. Arriving at the site, it appears (on the surface) to be a sounding wall for anonymous comments, and after poking around for a bit this afternoon, I can’t find anything for further investigation, but I may be missing something… obvious, having not read the book yet. Perhaps one of our intrepid readers can point us towards the more secret secrets in our comments?

The use of the Internet to expand the narrative of a book is nothing new, but it’s always encouraging to see it happening, especially with books for kids and teens. I’m a big fan of getting the young’uns more interested in reading, and tying the written word to the World Wide Web has worked for such properties as 39 Clues, Ice Shock and Skeleton Creek. Hopefully those that have been entertained by Dot Robot will enjoy the secrets discovered at the web site.


  1. On the site, read the ‘recent secrets’. There’s one that points you to a one-pixel-sized secret link.

  2. Is there something to do on this site beyond flying the spacecraft?

  3. Sorry but where is the game on this website? everyone is saying ‘i got 9000 points i got 10000 points’ something like that. Can u help me :/

  4. Wdf! My highest score was only 1500!!!!! 🙁

  5. alternatively… looking at the source reveals a link to http://www.doyouknowanysecrets.com/index.asp...

  6. they’ve closed doyouknowanysecrets down. 🙁 But it was fun while it lasted!
