Discusses the machines, weapons, and other equipment used by spies as they gather intelligence.
Children's Literature - Katie DeWaldHave you ever heard of an umbrella or wallet that shoots poison? These are some of the equipment used by spies to carry out their missions. This book from the "Spies" series tells about spy tools, explains how spies collect and send information, and describes spy weapons. Readers will learn about spy disguises, microdot cameras, hidden cameras, and bugs. Quirky modern borders and graphics draw attention to the text and add interest to the book. Vocabulary words are highlighted with purple file folder tabs at the bottom of a page of text and are also included in the glossary. Additional information under the headings "Spy Files" and "Spy Facts" appears in text boxes throughout the book and clarifies the topics at hand or tells a related spy story. Real pictures of spy gear from history serve to capture the attention of the reader. A helpful table of contents and index add to the book's ease of use, while readers can find out more about spies by referencing the more information section and list of internet sites. Martin satisfies his readers' curiosity for spy gadgets while providing his audience with a simple and manageable text. Reviewer: Katie DeWald
