Anna Strong and the Revolutionary War Culper Spy Ring

A Spy on History Book

By Enigma Alberti

Illustrated by Laura Terry

Your Mission: Discover Anna’s secret message using spycraft tools to uncover hidden codes!

It’s a true story of the American Revolution:
Meet the secret Culper Ring, a network of American spies fighting against the army of British redcoats, and historical figures like George Washington and the soon-to-be-infamous Benedict Arnold. And meet Anna Strong, an unsung heroine who found ingenious ways to communicate top-secret messages to her fellow spies, helping to save the American colonies from British rule.

It’s a mystery to solve: There are clues embedded in the book’s text and illustrations. Spycraft materials, including a cipher wheel, come in an envelope at the beginning of the book. Use them to decode Anna’s hidden message and discover the secret mission she undertook for the Culper Ring!
