About How to be an International Spy

How to be an International Spy Title: How to be an International Spy | Author: Andy Briggs | Publication Date: September, 2015 | Publisher: Lonely Planet Kids | Pages: 160 | Recommended Ages: 8+ Description: Are you ready to start your training, Agent? How to Be an International Spy: Your Top Secret Guide to Espionage ($17.99) by Andy Briggs will teach aspiring undercover investigators (ages 8+) all they need to know about the shadowy world of spies.
From cool gadgets and sneaky


I was sent a free digital copy of How to be an International Spy in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of How to be an International Spy.

This book is like one of those books that your child would bring home from the book fair at their local school. It has an awesome cover that makes children want it without even turning a page. This book is not meant for young children as it requires an understanding of puzzles, numbers, government, and words. Personally I would see this book as being read by an advanced third grader , but more likely a fourth through sixth grader. The puzzles are not easy, but they are solvable with some effort and work. The illustrations are well done and they provide a good backdrop to the book.

The book itself is not just some play book it actually teaches children about what it means to be a spy (to a certain extent). It also explains concepts like types of spies and types of secrets. I personally enjoyed the history section on real spies, their actions, and their time lines.I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about spies, their gadgets, and have some fun.
