What people are saying

  • _Informative, funny, original.

    _Mary Moncrieffe, Parent of 2, 7 Dec 2016

  • _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.

    _Fionnuala O'Driscoll, Mum, 30 Nov 2016

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

    _@FairtradeUKEd, 11 Dec 2016

  • _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.

    _Simon Cook, London

For all kids, everywhere.

In kids' media, only 2.9% of characters are black, boys are twice as likely to take the lead, 92% of female characters are underweight, and not one single superhero recycles. That’s not right. This needs to change. We've created Detective Dot to inspire the next generation to be coders, not Kardashians. Read more about our story here.

And because teachers rock, for every book you buy, we give free materials to a school.
