Product description

Summer, 1940. Hitler’s army is advancing towards Paris, and millions of French civilians are on the run. Amid the chaos, two British children are being hunted by German agents. British spy Charles Henderson is trying to reach them first, but he can only do it with the help of a 12-year-old French orphan. The British secret service is about to discover that kids working undercover can help them win the war…

Get set for action and adventure in Henderson’s Boys – the gripping new series which sets the scene for CHERUB!

“This book was unputdownable. It gripped me from start to finish, and was just as good as the CHERUB series, if not better!” Aaron, 14, First News

“Gripping and compelling.” Carousel

    I thought this book was excellent. Mark is a brilliant character, although at times, quite stupid. It was rather gory, lots of people died, and Henderson (he’s a spy) didn’t seemed to care who he shot. Even though this was quite unsettling it made the book more realistic somehow, I think it could have got along without the shedloads of swearwords though. Nevertheless it had a wonderful storyline, with twists and turns, I hope some of the characters Marc started with end up meeting him again, fingers crossed for that. I really recommend it, it’s a fantastic novel. Right, I think I’ll start hunting for the next book now!

    Sequel to the amazingly poular pre-series of the even more popular CHERUB
