Product Description

Read the complete Secret Coders saga from start to finish! This deluxe boxed set collects all six volumes of the action-packed graphic novel series by New York Times–bestselling author Gene Luen Yang

Plus includes a set of six collectable character cut-outs of your favorite Secret Coders characters!

Secret Coders
Welcome to Stately Academy, a school which is just crawling with mysteries to be solved! The founder of the school left many clues and puzzles to challenge his enterprising students.

Secret Coders: Paths & Portals
In the last volume, Hopper and Eni discovered a robot in the supply closet and programmed him to do mischief. Now they''re trapped in an underground lair, and they must use their new programming skills to escape.

Secret Coders: Secrets & Sequences
Hopper, Eni, and Josh won''t rest until they''ve learned the whole story of the Stately Academy, but they aren''t the only ones interested in the school''s past...

Secret Coders: Robots & Repeats
Dr. One-Zero has added a new class to Stately Academy''s curriculum. But in "Advanced Chemistry," they only teach one lesson: how to make Green Pop!

Secret Coders: Potions & Parameters
At long last, the Coders have found Hopper''s missing father―but he''s not the same. He drank Professor One-Zero''s poisonous concoction, Green Pop. Now he''s in a blissful stupor and all he cares about is the color green.

Secret Coders: Monsters & Modules
The Coders always knew their programming skills would take them far, but they never guessed it would take them to another dimension! To save humanity, they must travel to the two-dimensional world of Flatland. But to open the gateway, they must first write their most difficult code yet!

Review

"Gene Luen Yang’s talent is prodigious, his enthusiasm contagious . . . Even this confirmed technophobe was ready to learn coding." ―Katherine Applegate, author of Crenshaw and The One and Only Ivan

"Secret Coders not only uses Logo but also touches on computer fundamentals like binary code and the three major ways that code is organized . . . Readers will learn them all, right alongside Hopper and Eni, not as something dry or rote, but something transformative." ―Wired

I’m aalways looking for coding type books for my 4yo son since he loves math and coding. These are geared for kids older than him but I love the coding and math concepts incorporated into them. What I don’t love are the outdated sexist norms depicted.

The story is about a girl name Hopper who starts at a new school and befriends another student and they go on a math and coding adventure. The problem solving is fantastic and is a captivating read (even for me).

Some things to note:
It’s with mainly green and white illustrations and not full colored illustrations. There are also bad habit forming language and unnecessary story plot about being defiant to parents, bullying, and outddated sexist thinking directed to the girl protagonist “the powder room’s that way little girl.” I really wish it didn’t have that story plot but it was a good opportunity to talk to my son about bullying. My son agreed that it wasn’t very nice of the bullies—so there’s that. Also, I wish the font size was larger.

Bought these as a gift for our 7yo for his birthday. We haven''t even given him this set yet. He found a copy of one book at the local library and devoured it in 2 days. He says it''s an awesome book so I have no doubt he''ll love the set once he gets it. The stories are written in graphic novel type. The graphics grab the interest even of our younger not-yet-reader.

My 8 year old absolutely loves these books. Super cute story, and it taught him the basics of binary and coding. He''s on his 3rd or 4th time through the series.

If you first learned to code using Logo...you''ll love introducing it to your kids with this series... initially we just waited patiently for our local public library (public libraries FTW) but after the completion of the series couldn''t pass up buying the box set.

I found this book did a great job of explaining programming concepts to the kids. The author did an amazing job conveying concepts like Variables If statements, loops and even functions in an engaging way and wrapped up in a engrossing plot to keep kids invested. I only with there was a specific website with the GO IDE to immediately help kids practice some of the topics
