Summary
  • "Growing up in nineteenth century London, England, Ada is curious about absolutely everything. She is obsessed with machines and with creatures that fly. She even designs her own flying laboratory! According to her mother, Ada is a bit too wild, so she encourages Ada to study math. At first Ada thinks: Bleh! Who can get excited about a subject without pictures? But she soon falls in love with it. One day she encounters a mysterious machine, and from that moment forward Ada imagines a future full of possibility."--Page [4] of cover
  • From the world of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls comes the historical fiction novel about the exciting life and adventures of Ada Lovelace. In Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code, Ada uses her incredible imagination to dream up technology that could have jump started the digital age nearly two hundred years ago. In fact, she writes what will become the world's first programming language. As a child, Ada is curious about everything. She is obsessed with machines and creatures that fly, even going so far as to write her own book about them called "Flyology." Along with her cat, Mistress Puff, Ada gets into all sorts of trouble. According to her mother, Ada is a bit too wild and her imagination could benefit from some discipline, so she puts Ada into a rigorous syllabus of mathematics, languages, and geography
