New terms are defined; code is colored, dissected, and explained; and quirky, full-color illustrations keep things fun and engaging throughout. Chapters end with programming puzzles designed to stretch the brain and strengthen understanding. By the end of the book, young readers will have programmed two complete games: a clone of the famous Pong, and “Mr. Stick Man Races for the Exit”—a platform game with jumps and animation.
