For all kids, everywhere

We created Detective Dot to inspire the next generation to be coders, not Kardashians. In kids stories today, 0% of princesses code, boys are twice as likely to be the lead, under 3% of characters are BAME, 92% of female characters are underweight, and Batman doesn’t recycle! This has to change. And because teachers rock, for every book you buy, we give free materials to a school.

They think it is 100% legit... It is total magic for them.

Catherine, Mum of 2

Great gadgets, lots of mystery and the cliff hangers are intense.

The birthday girl couldn't put the book down and read the whole thing in a day! Loves the secret missions too.
