This is the fourth in the Henderson's Boys series that has been such a hit with 9+ boys everywhere. It's Spring, 1941 and German submarines are prowling the North Atlantic, sinking ships filled with the food, fuel and weapons that Britain needs to survive. With the Royal Navy losing the war at sea, six young agents must sneak into Nazi-occupied Europe and sabotage a submarine base on France's western coast. If the submarines aren't stopped, the British people will starve.

Reviews

Praise for The Escape:

'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' - Waterstones Quarterly, March 2009

'This book was un-putdownable. It gripped me from start to finish, and was just as good as the CHERUB series, if not better.' - Aaron, 14, First News

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.
