The Lovereading4Kids comment

Cherub No. 10: This tremendously exciting series written by an author who has, through his writing been responsible for bringing more reluctant readers into reading than almost any other author, continues with its 10th title. It’s a fast moving action-packed thriller that will have the reader completely hooked from the outset. The plot is once again superb and the characters so well drawn and realistic that you even feel it could be you. It’s not essential to read these thrillers in order as they are stand alone novels in their own right, however once you’ve read one you’ll want to read them all anyway.

A word from the author: In every CHERUB book up to now there's been a training exercise first and a mission at the end. The General flips that idea on its head, by starting off with James and the gang on two separate missions. Then everyone comes together for a training exercise at the end. Of course it's the climax of the book, so it has to be the biggest CHERUB training exercise ever!

Synopsis

The General. Part of the Cherub Series by Robert Muchamore

The world's largest urban warfare training compound stands in the desert near Las Vegas. Forty British commandos are being hunted by an entire American battalion. But their commander has an ace up his sleeve: he plans to smuggle in ten CHERUB agents, and fight the best war game ever.

CHERUB agents have one crucial advantage: adults never suspect that kids are spying on them. For official purposes, these children do not exist.

About the Author

Robert Muchamore

One of the World Book Day 2014 Authors - Read more about the WBD book Rock War Audition here.
Robert Muchamore was our Guest Editor in Feb 2010 - click here - to see the books that inspired his writing.

Robert Muchamore was born in Islington in 1972. As a teenager he dreamt of either becoming an architect, a photographer or a writer. On discovering that architects have to train for seven years and after quitting his Saturday job in a camera shop, he saved up enough money to buy a word processor and set his heart on writing. The only problem was, he didn't know what to write. So, he found a regular job and spent thirteen years as a private investigator.

Robert grew up listening to mix tapes sent to him by his older brother, developing tastes for indie bands like Joy Division, The Pogues and The Smiths. The idea for Rock War came from seeing that many of Robert's fans turned up at book signings wearing the logos of long dead rock bands, and a realisation that his online fan forum had more kids talking about the X-Factor than about his books.

See a video of Robert talking about his book People's Republic.
