Product description

Review

"Liukas' whimsical multimedia illustrations nicely balance entertaining storytelling with informative images. The entire package is incredibly accessible, interesting, and kid-friendly, and, since it focuses primarily on the fundamentals of what makes a computer rather than coding, it fills a much-needed niche in the world of computer-science books for children." --Booklist
