MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book does a superb job of fitting programming concepts - and Python learning - to building several games with the ever useful Pygame library. ... Aimed at younger readers, but accessible to all, Craven's teaching experience shows through in both tone and pace ... . Plentiful exercises, including a whole chapter at the end revisiting every project in the book, drive the lessons deep. Well written, well developed, and ... very enjoyable to work through." (The MagPi, Issue 46, June, 2016)
