This book tells the story of the Revolutionary War from the angle of the spies who helped win it. The story of America's first spies lends the history a sense of adventure and an immediacy that's lacking in so many historical books for children, making this an excellent choice for kids who have trouble enjoying history. In addition, the book is well-researched and includes the web addresses where readers can find the original letters and journals online. Finally, readers can get involved with the original Revolutionary War codes, making and breaking them themselves. The book contains George Washington's code key, and several codes are tucked away in the margins of the book. Attentive readers who find these codes can use the code key to crack the messages!
