About Code Breakers

Delve into the secret history of the greatest code makers and code-breakers.

From the deciphering of the Rosetta Stone to cracking the Enigma code during World War II, curious kids can explore how codes are created and cracked to reveal top secrets!

Venture into the world of codes and cyphers! Inside the pages of this fun children's book, you will discover:

- Includes a reference section with key facts, timelines, and a glossary of terms
- A short, paperback book, perfect gift for reluctant readers aged 9 and up

Many adventure stories have ended with the hero "cracking the code" and saving the day! The truth is people have been using codes throughout history to guard and pass along secret information that they don't want in the hands of their enemies (or nosy siblings!)

In this code-breaking book for kids, explore the mysterious world of clever codes and cyphers that have been invented over the years. Learn all about the brilliant people and the fiendishly innovative ways they eventually cracked the codes. Become an expert in cryptology as you follow the stories of famous code-breakers and their place in history.

Code Breakers is part of the Mega Bites series, which uncovers the secrets of history, science, and the natural world. Go back into the past and investigate the fascinating history of the ancient Egyptians in Mummies and then journey to the Gladiators' deadly world. Closer to home, learn all about the most lethal predator in the ocean - sharks! Whichever title you pick, you'll get expert knowledge and fun facts you need on each topic, with every book packed with illustrations, entertaining stories, and anecdotes.
