Answer to secret morse code: "We hope you enjoy the book".

Book Description
Now young children can read the true story of the famous inventor.

Why did the world-famous scientist come to Newfoundland in December 1901. What secret experiments did he carry out on Signal Hill in St. John's? And why did he feel he had to keep them secret? What was Marconi's invention and how has it saved numerous lives and changed the world of communications?

Marconi's life and work are revealed through the eyes of two young children, Molly and Sam, as they visit Signal Hill and are told the story by their grandfather.

The book contains the Morse code and secret message for children to decode themselves.

About the Author

Marconi's Secret is the first book in a children's history series which uses the National Historic Sites of Newfoundland and Labrador as settings. Browne also writes a monthly newspaper column and has had articles published across Canada and the United states. She has picked up writing awards from the Newfoundland and Labrador's Arts and Letters Competition, the Nova Scotia Writers' Federation and CBC Radio.

Susan Chalker Browne lives in St. John's Newfoundland with her husband Dennis and their four children.

Mel D'Souza is well known to us all through his illustrations in Downhomer Magazine. Mel's roots go back to Goa, a Portuguese enclave in India, and he now lives in Brampton, Ontario. But at heart Mel is a true Newfoundlander. He travels Newfoundland whenever possible sketching and taking photographs. He especially loves the south coast and plans to settle there some day.
