A lot of kids use computers and do coding at school so I think most people will enjoy this book because it's exciting, I would read more in the series. -- Ewan, 10 Years Old * Toppsta *
This is a great book because it is different to other mysteries! Asha uses the kind of coding we learn at school. I love doing coding and it's really good to see it in a story ... I think lots of kids will enjoy this book because it's exciting and there are some fun, silly bits (like the farting selfie stick). I'm looking forward to the next book in the series! -- Reviewer, 10 Years Old * Toppsta *
A fantastic class novel, with a strong Asian female character, all about coding and computers with a sprinkling of fart jokes - what could be better? -- Sycamore Grove * Toppsta *
I certainly feel Asha's unique adventure, together with Tumble - her robo hamster sidekick, will be a hit with lower KS2. -- Teacher * Toppsta *
