What did the judges think?

Judge Sarah Eames, primary school teacher and Fellow of the Primary Science Teaching Trust, said: “Coding and computing are subjects normally difficult to make entertaining, so the authors have cleverly turned them into narratives, making the topics engaging with these little stories you can just dip in and out of. They’re the perfect size, too, so you really feel like returning again and again.”
