Jason: Think of it as a challenge to prove me wrong.
Paige: About what?
The Artemis Fowl books by Eion Colfer
use a substitution code of symbols for writing in “Elvish”. The “rosetta stone” for the code is given in the first book.
My great nephew at 7 could manage the books, but begged my help with the coded messages.
I explained how the code worked, and helped him work out the key.
We started decoding the messages, and he was astonished that, after ten or so messages, I started sight reading the code without using the key.
I supposed years of working in machine code trains the brain in pattern recognition.
