Suppose you had to send a secret message to a friend. How would you do it? Dog detectives Lu and Clancy will show you more than 20 fool-proof codes. You’ll discover how to:

* hide your message in a crossword puzzle
* use your telephone as a code machine
* make a code wheel that will baffle spies
* send a musical message, and much more.

Once you’ve tried a code, you can help Lu and Clancy unravel the mystery of Lu’s missing sister.
