Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Until now, your dreams of being James Bond or at least Maxwell Smart have remained unfulfilled and you wander the world searching for a purpose. Wait no more; the latest installment of John Austin's Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction has arrived to push you towards imaginary secret agent immortality. With this book, you can create your fake security camera and transform an average milk jug cap into fake wristwatch that launches tiny paper darts. Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction 2 contains 35 spy weapons and surveillance tools to keep you busy and amused. (Remember: It looks like a Tic Tac container, but it's actually an ever-ready vest-pocket candy shooter.)

From the Publisher

    Ages 13+ for some projects!

    Great book but i figured out that some projects are explosive or require tools, not very kid friendly and other projects require you to spend $20 at the craft store down the street. And most projects make you smash about a thousand pens and breack rubberbands all in all good book

    Listen!

    This is a great activity book but this is hard. Some items you may npt have, and the activities pose many challenges. I got the first book thinking that it would be easy, and i nearly blew my fingers up.
