PERFECT book for non-reading, screen addict aged nine and over.

...and more importantly, the subtitle;
The (Mostly) True Story of the First Computer

The fabulous binding and endpapers and overall design of this book might not matter to your average screen addict, but it has to be mentioned. This book is a beauty.

Its a graphic novel about two real people, who almost invented the first computer.

They are;
Inventor Charles Babbage, and

Lord Byrons daughter Ada.

I've only had a quick look, long enough to know that it will be under our Christmas tree but will have to be labelled to my ten, twelve and fourteen year old's, as otherwise there will be killings. It was €18 euros, so way more than I would normally spend, (to be fair there are 320 pages) but I'm pretty sure it was worth it.
