Leggies says this book is 'Cool, WOW, Awesome'. He is definitely impressed. He loves all the facts about the history of the internet and related things. Leggies definitely wants to do a job in the future to so with computers and game development and this is a great book to start with. It has a firm place on his bookshelf and will be read again and again. 

As a parent I like the way this book is presented; lots of pictures and lots of short sharp facts, also love that it keeps Leggies' attention!

Very interesting read, with lots of engaging diagrams, pictures and photos. 

Useful for older children - those aged 9+ who want to learn more about computers, games and other technology that uses coding. 

There is a lot of up to date information, especially on APPS and the internet. 

A great read for children who are interested in this kind of technology

Book was full of very informative information but my son didn't really find it suitable for him. He didn't really understand most of it.
His dad on the other hand actually enjoyed reading it and found it very interesting.

I loved this book, it gave you so many tips on coding. It also told you about some of the best coders ever. It is good for boys and girls age 7 and over I think. It tells you about what robots think and how they are programmed. It tells you programme websites and apps and all about viruses and how to stop them.

This is a bright easy to use informative book. It is quite an easy read and the layout makes you want to keep dibbing in and out. I am sure most children in my age group would be tempted to pick it up and read it !
There are lots of pictures and easy to understand explanations .
My Dad and Mum read it too . They felt that the computing history was a little biased and heavily focused on America's development of computers and coding . There should have been a bit more on how the UK contributed. 
That said my parents felt that it was a good introduction to coding and I agree.
