Meet Detective Dot + The Gang
Secret agent for the CIA, nine-year-old Dot loves all things tech. But, she knows having a smartphone means nothing if you don’t have a smart brain to use it!
A small flying robot, Dot’s programmed Drone to to do all sorts of cool spy stuff. Unless she’s low on battery, has a bug, or worst of all - can’t get signal (cue rage mode).
Tumble used to be a designer t-shirt, and he won't let anyone forget about it. He only stops talking about himself when he's posing for selfies, and his silliness often lands the gang in trouble.
Teenage gazillionaire Shelly Belly puts profit before babies, kittens and people. But how does the inventor of Lav Nav make everything so cheap? Dot is on the case.
What people are saying
_Informative, funny, original.

_Since reading it my son has certainly been more considered in his approach to the world - I'm constantly being asked what things are made of, what country they come from. etc. It's gratifying and infuriating in equal measure. Thank god for Google.

_Perfect for school libraries: coding & ethics in supply chains.

_I like the depth in the characters and the fact you haven't dumbed down the computer language too much. I also like the multi- cultural dimension of the characters and how children come across as being both powerful and agents for change in the world.
_Hayley Davis, Teacher, 31 Jul 2016
_The look of total joy on my daughter's face when she realised she was a secret agent was priceless.
