Publisher Description

A story about computer science and other improbable things. Laurie is lost in Userland. She knows where she is, or where she's going, but maybe not at the same time. The only way out is through Jargon-infested swamps, gates guarded by perfect logic, and the perils of breakfast time at the Philosopher's Diner. With just her wits and the help of a lizard who thinks he's a dinosaur, Laurie has to find her own way home.

Lauren Ipsum is a children's story about computer science. In 20 chapters she encounters dozens of ideas from timing attacks to algorithm design, the subtle power of names, and how to get a fair flip out of even the most unfair coin.

Craig A. Damon ,

Lauren Ipsum

This is the greatest introduction to many of the concepts in computer science that I have ever seen. A classic along side Alice in Wonderland and Godel, Escher, Bach, but one available to a much younger audience.
