Description

What is a spy, or spook? Which are the world's famous spying organisations? Who were the most famous spies? Now you can find out. Get the facts. And if you want to be a spy, get some useful tips. See if you can crack the secret codes. Then find out about some brilliant spying gadgets. Then read 'The Secret Agent', a story about the dangers of being a double agent.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
