This book provides an interesting angle on the American Revolution and will be of particular interest to students who love history, specifically the American Revolution and/or spy themes. It might also serve as a great hook for students who are not usually drawn to history topics. The stories within each chapter focus on the spies (even George Washington himself was one) and "secret" anecdotes (John Hancock was rumored to be a smuggler) that young students might find more exciting than the typical explanations and timelines that are in their history textbooks. Mixed in between these stories are fun activities relating to spy themes, such as how to develop a good "spy memory", cracking Washington's code book, and how to make invisible ink. This small book is full of interesting, engaging information . . . .
