A little girl must use her coding skills to save her video-game home in this adorable debut picture book.
Ava thinks living in a video game is pretty cool. She and her cat, Pixels, spend their days riding breakfast rollercoasters and heading to underwater discos. And if something isn’t exactly perfect, Ava can reprogram the world to be just the way she likes it.
But then the game’s villain, Max Hacksalot, comes along on his magical pirate unicorn and breaks all of Ava’s code. When Max manages to send them all to the Game Over screen, it’s up to Ava and her coding skills to save the day!
