Girls Who Code – An Empowering Graphic Novel By Reshma Saujani And Andrea Tsurumi
by Hannah Means Shannon
Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World, written by Reshma Saujani (the founder of Girls Who Code) and illustrated by Andrea Tsurumi has recently been released by Penguin Random House and is available in shops.
It’s a book that’s appropriate for YA audiences, starting as young as ages 10 and up, but meaningful for all ages of readers interested in closing the gender gap in tech.
This celebratory volume is beautifully illustrated by Tsurumi, who has a remarkable history in illustration and comics, and brings bold, fresh attitude to each of her panels. The aqua green color themes are brisk and appealing, too.
Here’s a sampling of that artwork:
Andrea Tsurumi will also be at the Princeton Children’s Book Festival on Saturday, September 23rd from 11:00am-4:00pm at Hinds Plaza in Princeton, N.J. with Girls Who Code.
