Secret Coders: Robots & Repeats
Hopper, Eni, and Josh are kids who go to the same school. They’ve been learning about coding from the janitor. In this book, the villain is their principal. He says they can’t hang out together anymore. Of course, they won’t listen to him. How will they use code to stop their enemies? Read the book to find out.
This book was good. All the Secret Coders books are pretty good. I like all the characters. Little Guy is my favorite robot. I also like Cuddles. Is the villain really a villain? He’s just a really confused, good coder.
The book pauses so you can do code, too. I like doing the code. The programming language is Logo. You learn about nested repeats in this book.
The Secret Coders books always have cliffhangers. They don’t make sense unless you’ve read the other books. The fact that you need to read the other books is okay.
This book is a graphic novel. I like the pictures. (The only colors are green, gray, black, and white.) It’s pretty exciting. It’s also funny. I’m really excited to read the next book!
