«Coding and computing are subjects normally difficult to make entertaining, so the authors have cleverly turned them into narratives, making the topics engaging with these little stories you can just dip in and out of. They’re the perfect size, too, so you really feel like returning again and again.»

Royal Society Prize Judge

«There is enough in it to build a lesson a day for almost an entire school year and that doesn't include the offshoot investigations that would take you off on a tangent! I can envisage those eight-year-olds of 30 years ago pouring over it!»

Barbara Braxton, Librarian
