By Robert Muchamore
The very first CHERUB adventure is about to begin ...
Late summer, 1940.
Hitler has conquered France. Now he intends to cross the Channel and defeat Britain before winter arrives.
A group of young refugees led by British spy Charles Henderson faces a stark choice. To head south into the safety of neutral Spain, or go north on a risky mission to sabotage the German invasion plans.
For official purposes, these children do not exist.
Robert Muchamore was born in Islington in 1972 and spent thirteen years working as a private investigator. He loves Arsenal and watching people fall down holes. He hates swimming and getting chased by cows.
He was inspired to start writing by his nephew`s complaints about the lack of anything for him to read!
The CHERUB series has now become a number one bestseller in several countries.
