    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.

    Rather than using existing programming languages like Scratch and Python, this fun and accessible book teaches children how to write code all by themselves. By learning 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.

With stories as exciting as an FA Cup final and characters based on Frank's former team-mates, you'll be cheering Frankie and his friends on throughout the pages.
