Praise for books in the CHERUB series: 'Punchy, exciting, glamorous and, what's more, you'll completely wish it was true.' -- The Sunday Express 'An excellent start to a promising series. It is every boy's wish to be a spy, and this book will enthrall every single one of them.' -- The Bookseller 'An exciting, swiftly moving tale' -- School Librarian 'A fast-paced action thriller, which should turn into a fantastic series - if James manages to live that long.' -- Young Post
Robert Muchamore was born in Islington in 1972 and spent thirteen years working as a private investigator. He was inspired to create the CHERUB series by his nephews' complaints about the lack of anything for them to read!
