A maze in the shape of a house

I made this house-shaped maze when I was 11. I have to admit, it was not inspired by Maze but by a one-page maze in an Usborne puzzle book. I copied the idea and the style, but the layout was my own. Looking at it now, I can see that it is not a very hard puzzle, and the colour choices are kind of all over the place, but I was very proud of it at the time.

On the subject of Usborne books, did anyone else have a set of Usborne Good Spy Guides? I loved these, especially the Secret Messages one, which showed how to encrypt and decrpyt messages using simple systems like the Caesar shift, how to make a spy kit that fits in a matchbox, and how to hide your messages for your fellow spies to find, using wily techniques such as kneeling down and pretending to tie your shoelace. I credit this book with igniting an enduring fondness for classic cryptography and I wish I still had it, but it was long ago reduced to tatters from overuse. I, and I’m sure others, have spent some time trying to find enciphered messages in the text of Maze but so far nothing has emerged…
