Ada & Zangemann : A Tale of Software, Skateboards, and Raspberry Ice Cream Hardback

Illustrated by Sandra Brandstatter



The famous inventor Zangemann lives in a huge villa high above the city.

Adults and children alike love his inventions and are desperate to have them.

But then something happens: when Zangemann wants to take another close-up look at his inventions during a walk through the city, a child hits him in the shin with the skateboard.

That hurts! Enraged, the inventor makes a momentous decision... The clever girl Ada sees through what is going on. Together with her friends, she forges a plan. This illustrated children's book tells the story of the famous inventor Zangemann and the girl Ada, a curious tinkerer.

Ada begins to experiment with hardware and software, and in the process realises how crucial it is for her and others to control technology.

Ada & Zangemann will inspire children's interest in tinkering and encourage shaping technology.
