Gr. 4-6. Double agents with their secrets, lies, tricks, gadgets, and disguises are the fascinating subjects of these two titles in the Spies and Spying series. From Polish beauty queen Christine Granville, who spied for Poland, Britain, and France against Germany in World War II, to senior CIA officer Aldrich Adams, who spied for the Soviets during the cold war, each double-page spread focuses on one case of espionage. The series design is open and readable, with lots of subheads, captioned photos, a map, a glossary, and a summary of historical background accompanying each case. Unfortunately, there are a few serious errors in the history: Holland did not remain neutral during World War II (though it did in World War I), and the Nazis didn't rule Germany until 1949 (their control ended in 1945). Let's hope the mistakes are corrected in subsequent printings, since this is otherwise an exciting series. Middle-school readers will want to find out more; instead of all those columns of glossary, sources would be helpful. Hazel Rochman
