kareila: hidden between stacks of books (books)
[personal profile] kareila posting in [community profile] kareila_books
I don't think I've ever reviewed a textbook before, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one to anyone who (like me) learns best by reading code examples. Yes, it's for kids, and the overall tone and wildly creative illustrations speak to that audience, but it's a solid introduction, and the engaging design kept me turning pages in situations where I would often gets bored or distracted working through a drier text.

I mostly skimmed the examples toward the end, which focused more on GUI programming, but it does cover turtle drawings, a Minesweeper clone, and some basic Tk toolkit stuff.
