Usually when someone attempts to combine two areas of expertise together (in this case, Arduino making and fiction writing), there is a clear deficiency. In the case of Arduino Adventures, the levels of skill are equally matched. The fiction isn't going to win any Nebula awards, nor is the making going to break much new ground, but that is not why this book was written. What is does do is to engage adult and children in thinking about and making electronics with an Arduino.

Yes, at times the writing is a bit cheesy, and some of the challenges are very simple (though, the writer is the first to admit this as the outline of the challenges is explained).

My 9 year old son has enjoyed this and asks for new chapters and challenges. After the last chapter and challenge, my daughter, who had been eavesdropping from the other room asked if we could include her in the next chapter. She is 7. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the fiction and non-fiction, as well as making to meet the challenges.

Do take a look at the component kit offered by smartmaker - we have found it to be 100% turn-key with all the components needed, and absolutely no corners cut. It is a good value as well as being convenient.

I want to say that as an adult I've really enjoyed this book. I think I've seen numerous reviews stating that the intended audience was for children but I as an adult have really found this book fun and informative way to learn the arduino by bein immersed in a fun story line that uses the arduino creatively to tie in the book by doing various fun projects. I'm grateful to have found this book and has assisted my learning Arduino greatly!
