9781930900851: Alvin's Secret Code

The warm, tingly feeling that had been smack in the middle of Alvin Fernald's stomach ever since Miss Peppersmith had closed and neatly lined up her books that Friday afternoon, had grown bigger as he and Shoie walked home from school. Now, here, in his hand, was the reason why! Alvin's sixth sense tells him that the crumpled note holds a secret message in spy code, which is about to catapult the two seventh grade secret agents plus Alvin's younger sister Daphne, the Pest, into the intricacies of authentic code detection and the dangers of a newly stirred-up 100-year-old mystery.
Even Alvin's Magnificent Brain is nearly put on overload before the bang-up solution to the code and the mystery carry the three agents to an ending that is satisfying to all...well, to almost all. This classic tale from 1963 includes Alvin's own notes on cryptography in an appendix at the back.

About the Author:

Clifford B. Hicks served as a U.S. Marine in the South Pacific during World War II, where he earned the Silver Star. After the war, he joined the writing staff of Popular Mechanics, eventually serving as Editor-In-Chief. Mr. Hicks also wrote science, health and technology stories for several other national magazines. He penned 16 books for children, including the Alvin Fernald and Peter Potts series. He and Rachel, his wife of more than 60 years, had three children, eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Review:

Not only is Alvin's Secret Code an exciting adventure, it's an engaging primer on cryptography. Of all Clifford B. Hicks's marvelous Alvin Fernald books, this is easily my favorite. -- --Joshua Glenn, coauthor of the UNBORED books

A fast moving, comical plot (buried treasure to boot)--it's certain to cause an increase in the number of amateur agents across the country. --Kirkus, September 1963
