    I honestly thought that this was a really cute book. It was definitely really intriguing as well as being a fun way to teach kids about the intricacies of language. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to learn more about how languages are developed and the different kinds. Plus, its really fun to create your own!

Their brothers and sisters are creeps who breathe their air! They want to be alone! They want to talk to their friends! Why can't they have some privacy!!! Why can't they leave me alone? A wise parent, hearing some version of these complaints, now has a solution. Give you children a way to create their own secret language! Instead of hearing the same merry-go- round arguments, give them a means of talking to their friends in a secure, even secret way. David J. Peterson is an inventor. He invents languages. He's done so for such wonders as Marvel's Cinematic Universe, Game of Thrones, and a host of other famous settings. He's devised this beginners guide to inventing codes, ciphers, and hidden messages. He'll show kids how to substitute letters for letters, and so make secret messages only 'real friends' can read. He'll keep the prying eyes of the creepy little brother out of your diary, because even when he tries to steal it, he'll be foiled because it is in a symbol code even his obnoxious buddies can't figure out. Peterson's guide will advise your budding sleuth of pitfalls, too. You'll see how some codes and ciphers can just be too hard to decipher. Or, some secret messages using symbols might be too easy to unlock, and thus not worth the effort. When you are trying to keep a secret, know who can read it. That means you have to have a 'key' which you give only to trusted friends. But where will they use this code? Will it be on a computer? In a letter? Beware! Each of these methods is subject to its own difficulties.Everyone who reads this will see examples of all types of methods used to keep secrets. There will be examples and then challenges to be sure you have it right. How better to while away a rainy afternoon than to learn about secret ways of communicating...then trying it yourself!

    A fun book about creating your own language to share secrets with your friends and to keep things such as diaries private from snooping eyes in your household. Nice graphics and some pages allow using it as a workbook to practice. It also provides information about languages and how those are formed, therefore another teaching tool. I think the audience for this book would be 10 to 14 years old although it is a bit sophisticated so best for middle graders that enjoy reading and are curious about A fun book about creating your own language to share secrets with your friends and to keep things such as diaries private from snooping eyes in your household.

    This book is shockingly good. Don’t let the cover art fool you, this was a good book for an adult. It’s a nice intro to linguistics. It covers every single code or cipher writing strategy I’ve ever learned about plus extras. It also goes over the parts of speech and things languages HAVE to have - or not. This is great for kids who like language, spies, other countries, secrets, codes, cursive, anything like that. Heck. It’s good for ADULTS who like anything like that. This book is dope.

    This book takes the reader through progressively more sophisticated activities beginning with a simple substitution cypher through more sophisticated codes, to writing systems, relexifications to full-blown invented languages.

    Turning over the job of reviewing this nifty little book to my 8-year-old, who is currently obsessed with all things even tangentially spy-related.

    The book is thoughtfully designed to be appealing and accessible to young readers. The voice is friendly and fun. Whimsical illustrations and graphic elements present the process of developing an encoding system as an adventure. Engaging areas for note taking encourage readers to learn by doing.
