Secret Coders: Secrets & Sequences

By Gene Luen Yang & Mike Holmes

This is book two of the series I shared yesterday. In this book, our heroes are trying to find Hopper’s dad.  To do this they have to code a robot to find a bad guy because he said he would take them away if they didn’t. There is even a green robot cat coded by the bad guy. All the robots of the bad guy are green because they drank something that makes them only want to see green.

I like that this a story that continues. You get to learn more about the characters, especially the bad guy. First they learn about him, this book they learn what he does and next book about what he wants.. (spoiler come back later this week for that review).

The same people who read book one of this series will want to read this. 

Psst.. there are even secret messages in this book

Secret coders

By Gene Luen Yang and Mike Holmes

This is the first book in a series about some kids who take up coding. This is when they start coding and they find the janitor is a coder too. With him they coding adventures. They find a turtle robot and they code him to do stuff.

I liked that this book is about coding. I like coding and it was cool to read a book about kid coders. Graphic novels are good way to share with kids about coding.

People who like coding and people interested in coding would like this. I am giving this to the robotics teacher at my school.
