Uncle

We're still reading Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead and Georges has his next Spy Club meeting.  Safer tells George about Uncle.  Check out these spy resources from the Spy Museum.  Scroll through this web page and see if you can find out if Uncle truly means the headquarters for any espionage organization.  Comment below if Safer is correct.

Georges Seurat

In the beginning of Liar and Spy by Rebecca Stead, we learn about the artist Georges Seurat. Georges describes his family's poster as "a picture painted entirely with dots...But if you stand back, you see that they make this whole nice park scene, with people walking around in old-fashioned clothes. There's even a monkey on a leash." (page 11).

Use your best research skills and see if you can find the name of this painting.
