Le Carré for ten-year-olds, this book made espionage seem like a
perfectly viable profession.
*Author David Nicholls in The Saturday Times*
As someone who had planned on a career in espionage from
the age of nine or so, thanks to the Knowhow Book of Spycraft
and its companion volume, the Official Spy’s Handbook – it is
no exaggeration that, for years on end, these books were my
life – my heart soared as the news that our secret services are
being urged to recruit middle aged mothers.
*The Sunday Times*
From cracking secret codes and creating effective disguises to tracking and decoding signals it's a book to be kept close at hand but hidden from the unknown enemy.
*Parents in Touch*
I love a book that encourages kids to be creative and The Usborne Official Spy’s Handbook is just that!
*The London Mummy Blog*
I remember reading this when I was a kid in the 80s with my sister and brother. We loved it, LOVED it so much!
