How to perform sneaky magic tricks, escape a grasp, craft a compass, and more
By Cy Tymony
Thank you, Cy . . . for opening up the world of tinkering and creativity to a whole new generation . . . looking to get their hands dirty with new and exciting projects." –NPR’s Ira Flatow, host of Science Friday
It’s The Dangerous Book for Boys meets Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook via The Boy Scouts of America Handbook–with lots of other cool sneaky boy stuff mixed in.
Cy Tymony’s Sneaky Book for Boys picks up where The Dangerous Book for Boys left off. While The Dangerous Book for Boys includes sections on Morse code and an explanation of latitude and longitude, the Sneaky Book for Boys continues by featuring instructions on how to make and use a Morse code set, along with crafting a latitude quadrant and a longitude sextant.
This clever book provides complete how-to instructions and diagrams for sneaky gadgets, survival skills, magic tricks, communication codes, and science projects. It also explores sneaky animals and insects and recycling and conservation techniques.
Specifically, sneaksters will learn about crows that crack their nuts using car tires; how to perform magic tricks with algebra; how to construct a compass and sneaky intercom; how to escape a grasp, safely start a fire (six different ways!), gather water in an emergency, and much more.
