Cory Doctorow at Boing Boing gives Carlos Bueno’s book Lauren Ipsum: A Story About Computer Science and Other Improbable Things, which tackles the basics of computer science through an adventure tale, a rave review! Check out the full review here.
The story opens with young Lauren running into the woods behind her house after a fight with her mother about whether she’s going to summer school. She meets a pack of vicious, yappy dog-creatures who turn out to be wild jargons, and they chase her through the woods until she is thoroughly lost. She meets the wandering salesman, who is trying to figure out how to visit every city in Userland — the strange kingdom she’s run to — and who offers her some seemingly helpful advice.
