Celebrate Coding Week with Agent Asha - digital pack

Walker Books would love to join you in celebrating Coding Week with a special offer for libraries nationwide.

Computer code just got dangerous in this new action-packed spy adventure series from Sophie Deen

“This rip-roaring secret agent caper for seven-plus is full of algorithms, debugging – broken down and engagingly explained – and fart jokes.” Guardian

Sophie Deen is back with a brand new mission. Asha is suspicious when evil teenage trillionaire Shelly Belly proposes to cut down all the trees in Asha’s favourite park to make room for CyberOaks: the new tech trees. Asha’s a top coder and super spy so she should be able to face robot security parrots, navigate a suspicious internship and travel to Shelly’s super-confidential base in Scotland to crack the case. Will Asha and her robo-hamster sidekick Tumble be able to protect the park and save the day?

The latest story in the series, Agent Asha: Operation Cyber Chop, is a great way to engage young readers in coding and critical-thinking as it combines STEM with exciting adventures. It is mapped onto key National Curriculum Computing KS1 and KS2 concepts including algorithms, conditionals and debugging.

Download the digital pack to help with your Coding Week activities.

We would love to see you enjoying the pack on social media using #AgentAsha and tagging WalkerBooksUK and readingagency.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
