    Coding is becoming an increasingly important skill for all children as they progress through their studies and this book can help them get to grips with the sometimes complex world of writing code and learning computer programming.

    Working in conjunction with the website www.getcodingkids.com, this fun and accessible book doesn't use existing programming languages like Scratch and Python, but instead teaches children how to write code all by themselves. By learning how to do this, they will be able to build their own website and master the likes of HTML, CSS and Javascript.

    Published in association with Young Rewired State - the leading worldwide community of digital makers aged 18 and under - the chapters cover the basic concepts of coding in six 'missions' that give children the chance to help Professor Bairstone keep the Monk Diamond safe from dangerous jewel thieves.

    The Funeral Boat finds Wesley intrigued by the possibility of a Viking corpse being buried in a smallholding. When a Danish tourist is abducted, Wesley must return to his day job - could there be a link between the two discoveries?
