I absolutely adored Get Smart as a kid. It led to me reading a lot of spy-themed children’s literature. There’s one book in particular that I was fond of but whose title and author escapes me. Can anyone help me identify it?
The book was billed as a manual for secret agents, but was actually aimed at kids. It consisted mostly of short tips ranging from a sentence to a paragraph in length. Each tip was accompanied by an icon that indicated its category. For example, tips concerning how to disguise yourself used a beaglepuss icon. An example disguise tip would have been something like, “You can disguise your footprints by wearing shoes several sizes too big. Whoever discovers the footprints will think that they were made by someone much taller than you.” Other tips covered things like special equipment and how to read and write secret codes.
I probably read the book in the very early 1990s, and it seemed new-ish at the time, so I’m guessing that it was published some time between, say, 1982 and 1992. I could be wrong, but I vaguely recall that the cover was blue.
