Potions & Parameters

Potions & Parameters Review

From graphic novel superstar (and former computer programming teacher) Gene Luen Yang, Secret Coders: Potions & Parameters is the fifth volume in a wildly entertaining series that combines logic puzzles and basic coding instruction with a page-turning mystery plot!

Professor One-Zero won't stop until the whole town—no, the whole world—embraces the "true happiness” found in his poisonous potion, Green Pop. And now that he has the Turtle of Light, he’s virtually unstoppable.

There's one weapon that can defeat him: another Turtle of Light. Unfortunately, they can only be found in another dimension! To open a portal to this new world, Hopper, Eni, and Josh's coding skills will be put to the test.

    This was cute - I love how it is engaging to the reader so that we can code too, or attempt to think/code for ourselves. The second dimension that Prof Bee is from and how that hierarchy worked was fa...

    I'm not sure if these are getting less exciting, or if it maybe it just feels like there isn't enough story in each book now, but I've been enjoying them less. They've always felt a little bit like th...
