Agent Asha: Mission Shark Bytes by Sophie Deen & illustrated by Anjan Sarkar

Agent Asha is a new series about a girl called Asha who is really good at coding. One day a kids’ spy agency emailed her because they needed her coding skills on a mission. Ireland’s internet cables under the sea were being attacked by sharks and Asha’s mission was to find out what was making the sharks go for the cables. The Children’s Spy Agency (CSA) had a suspect – teenage coding genius Shelly Nelly was suspected to be training the sharks to attack the cables and started up a new internet the moment the attacks started happening.

This is a great book because it is different to other mysteries! Asha uses the kind of coding we learn at school. I love doing coding and it’s really good to see it in a story. There are pictures of the lines of code. All the pictures add a lot of detail to the story. The case briefings and notes at the end of the story are really interesting.  I think lots of kids will enjoy this book because it’s exciting and there are some fun, silly bits (like the farting selfie stick). I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!

Thank you to Toppsta for this book!
