The world was at war, and for Sophia and Tom Place, their new home would be the safety of a farm in Wiltshire. That was until they created a simple way of using their favourite books to write codes and send top secret messages. They were The Book Spies and the first members of the Children’s Reading Intelligence Agency.
Follow the Book Spies over a 70 year journey as they save endangered species, prevent the theft of priceless art and literature, rescue the secrets of the CRIA from a crashed aircraft and stop an explosion at a computer gamers festival.
