I do like to see a well-used book… My 6-year-old is hugely into spy stuff at the moment and this fab Usborne Official Spy’s Handbook, brilliantly illustrated by Colin King, is his bible: it contains all the essential info a good spy needs to know, from dead drops to secret codes, spy rings to decoding signals ?. I’ve actually had to sneak it out of his room while he’s at school because he’s made it very clear that it’s strictly off-limits to us ‘non-spy’ people… He’s a chip off the old block with his use of post-it flags and notes!
