Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
Spymaster Helaine Becker leads young readers along the path to becoming "Secret Agent Y.O.U"—"Young Operator Undercover." Filled with quizzes and activities, the interactive text provides readers a way to test their secret skills and develop spy expertise. Future agents can learn about disguise, surveillance, cryptology, and communication. The end of the book includes answers to quizzes and puzzles to help readers evaluate their skills. There is a comprehensive index. Facts from historic espionage agencies (British Secret Service, U.S. National Security Agencies), famous spies (Genevieve Feinstein, Xiaoyun Want), secret activities (Bletchley Park, French Resistance), and famous real-life codes (Greek Box, Rail Fence) give readers a good sense of the role of spies in history. Dave Whammond's appealing illustrations draw readers in and reinforce the engaging text. The cartoon-like characters make real-life spies and situations com to life. The text is lively and appealing to a variety of ages, including some readers beyond the intended audience.
