Shelves: children
I got this book when I was a child, about ten years old, and I absolutely loved it. My friends and I pretended to be spies and tried out all the tricks illustrated in this great handbook, including the one on creating your own secret languages. This book provided countless hours of entertainment for us, and I'm thankful to the author for that. This is definitely a lovely gift for any child who wants something to do outdoors!
