Mary Bowser and the Civil War Spy Ring introduces an exciting interactive series for middle grade readers--Spy on History, where the reader gets to experience history in a whole new way.

Meet Mary Bowser, an African American spy who was able to infiltrate the Confederate leadership at the highest level. Enigma Alberti dramatizes Mary Bowser's suspenseful story--how she pretended to be illiterate, how she masterfully evaded detection, how she used her photographic memory to "copy" critical documents.

Using spycraft materials included in a sealed envelope inside the book, a canny reader will be able to discover and unravel clues embedded in the text and illustrations, and solve the book's ultimate mystery: Where did Mary hide her secret diary?
