Awesome walkthrough!

Nit picks: 

* pages 8 and 10: when you explain iterating over y, the example code on the right should use height, not width ;)

* page 14: 0 at 0 in Squeak generally denotes the top-left, with increasing y values going down. Only Etoys pretends to use a proper Cartesian coordinate system with y going up, and the origin in the lower left (or center, depending on your playfield's settings). So the image code actually goes through the pixels from top to bottom, whereas you show it going from bottom to top.

Also, for others to replicate your coding, you may have to briefly show how to make a textual Etoys script.
