Publisher Comments:

Pssst! Inside these TOP SECRET files is everything sneaky young agents need to know about making-and breaking-their own secret codes.

Do you know the difference between a code and a cipher? Can you tell a St. Cyr slide from a Cardano grille? Did you know that a substitution cipher caused Mary Queen of Scots to lose her head? Dont look now, but packed into this practical field guide is everything a young person needs to know about the art of concealment making and breaking codes, mastering cipher systems, and experimenting with secret writing. Offering plenty of hands-on practice sessions, tips for creating a code-making kit, sidebars on secret codes in history, and an amusing pair of spies to illustrate techniques, Paul B. Janeczkos tantalizing TOP SECRET wont stay a secret for long.

Let these top secret files fall into your hands and you'll have in your possession everything you need to know about making and breaking codes and ciphers. From everyday codes and pictographs to encryption and concealment methods used throughout history, this handbook provides the necessary tools for every budding secret agent and cryptographer.
