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…

Check out which books have inspired Robert Muchamore either in his childhood or along his writing journey.

Synopsis

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.

Reviews

'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.'
The Sunday Express

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.
