Just wanted to give this book one more shout out. You can win it and two other books from Workman Press just by entering with Rafflecopter down below. I’ll be choosing a winner on February 28, 2017.
Enigma Alberti takes us on a wild adventure with Mary Bowser in the midst of the Civil War. Mary Bowser was a real person who lived in the South during the Civil War, and she was a real life spy. This book tells a story about Mary, a slave working in the Confederate White House during the Civil War. As part of her duties, Mary sees coded documents on the president’s desk. She can read (unusual for a slave) and has a photographic memory, and over time begins decoding the messages she sees and sending information back to the Union.
That in itself makes it interesting, what makes it fun? The spy stuff included in the book. You (the reader) have your own code to crack. It took my 11yo an acceptable amount of time. Too much time and it’s not fun anymore, too short and it’s too easy. This was just right. You can win Spy on History: Mary Bowser and the Civil War Spy Ring, Who Wins? And Boss Babes by entering here: a Rafflecopter giveaway
