"Appropriate for younger teens, reluctant readers, or kids who love to browse, Nel Yomtov’s Revolutionary War Spies (Capstone, 2014; Gr 6 Up) pairs straightforward text with a slick layout. . . .Spread against colorful backdrops cobbled together from paintings, engravings, photos, and maps, the brief narrative covers the basics and will perhaps whet appetites for further investigation." - School Library Journal, "AMC’s New Series, ‘Turn’, and Electrifying Espionage Re

Library Media Connection - Michelle Bridges, McClintock Middle School, Charlotte, North Carolina

"Looking at these historical events and modern conflicts through the lens of how secrets were found out by different sides, and how those secrets and the spies themselves influenced the outcomes, is a fascinating approach to making history and politics kid-friendly. The text is broken up nicely into manageable chunks with brightly colored illustrations on every page." - Library Media Connection

School Library Journal - Sarah Knutson, American Canyon Middle School, CA

"These books offer glimpses into intrigue and subversion from the Revolutionary War to modern times, providing details about why military operations and governments need spies. . . .These overviews might spark a thirst for more knowledge rather than quenching one, but are interesting introductions to the topic. All of the books have photos, reproductions, or illustrations on every page." - School Library Journal
