Abstract:

"Princess Ruruna and Cain have a problem: their fruit-selling empire is a tangle of conflicting and duplicated data, and sorting the melons from the apples and strawberries is causing real difficulties. But what can they do? Why, build a relational database of course, with the help of Tico, the magical database fairy. Follow along in the 'Manga Guide to Databases' as Tico teaches Ruruna and Cain how to build a database to manage their kingdom's sales, merchandise, and exports. You'll learn how databases work and the meaning of terms like schemas, keys, normalization, and transactions."--Page 4 of cover.
