Matthew Parker's Decoder #2010-6

Have you been bobbling your brain to discover the meaning of the secret message at the end of the Jones & Parker mystery in the June 2010 issue of Focus on the Family Clubhouse magazine? If you missed it, here it is again:

Find out what it says by mirroring the alphabet.

Use this chart to decipher the code:
 
A  B C D E F G H  I  J K L M 
N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z


How It Works:
This code splits the alphabet in two and puts half the letters above the line and half below. To crack the code, treat the line like a mirror. So, not only does A=N, B=O and C=P, but also N=A, O=B and P=C. Make sense?

O   D  Y   S   S   E   Y 
B   Q   L   F   F   R   L


Coolness!
The letter "E" is the most used letter in the English alphabet. And what's used the least? "Q," of course!

Look for another secret message next month!
