The Lovereading4Kids comment
Another thrilling adventure for the hidden boys recruited into Henderson’s secret army. It is 1941; Britain is at war and the government needs the biggest network of underground agents it can muster. Training kids who can outsmart adults when they are parachuted into unknown territory is a daring plan. Especially since these kids do not officially exist…
Henderson's Boys 3: Secret Army by Robert Muchamore
Britain, 1941. The government is building a secret army of intelligence agents to work undercover, gathering information and planning sabotage operations. Henderson's boys are part of that network: kids cut adrift by the war, training for the fight of their lives. They'll have to parachute into unknown territory, travel cross-country and outsmart a bunch of adults in a daredevil exercise. In wartime Britain, anything goes.
'Muchamore's plain, punchy,often funny style ... is highly effective. This clever, tense novel is a great way of getting bored boys interested in history.'
- Amanda Craig, The Times
It has the feel of something quite big and satisfying...Muchamore's voice is fresh and direct.
- The Daily Telegraph
'Mixes espionage and gritty realism when dealing with children in the midst of a war'
Praise for books in the CHERUB series: 'Punchy, exciting, glamorous and, what's more, you'll completely wish it was true.'
