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.

_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.

_The look of total joy on my daughter's face when she realised she was a secret agent was priceless.
