Secrets and Spies: The Underground World of Espionage by Anita Ganeri & Luke Brookes

Children (and adults) are fascinated by the world of espionage. Going all the way back to ancient civilisations, people have found ways to go undercover and find out just what their enemies are up to. This book covers it all, revealing the secrets of spies throughout history. Do you have what it takes to be a spy?

Children will devour this book! I’m sure it won’t stay on class library shelves for long and my copy will disappear into my son’s room, never to emerge again. The double page spread about James Bond, information about Bletchley Park and Alan Turing and tips for how to use a whole host of ciphers will draw him in. What’s even better is the next time my dad visits from Canada, I’m sure the two of them will enjoy reading this book together. They love making codes for each other to solve and chatting about gadgets and the secrets of history.

Thank you to Little Tiger for this fascinating book!
