Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
The lure of the secret code! What young diary writer or spy wanna-be can resist a good code? And this little book is full of them! Along with the traditionally featured specialized languages like Morse Code, sign language, semaphore, and Braille; this little book includes chart codes, ice cream codes, hidden picture codes, and musical codes. And what's being decoded? Jokes and riddles, of course! In any language, it's a big thumbs up!
