Alex rider

Since Stormbreaker was published in 2000 Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider has become a literary sensation.

Clever, resourceful and never one to give up on his exploits, the schoolboy turned superspy who is forcibly recruited into MI6 has found himself in many far flung places in the world and even in space armed only with his own special set of secret gadgets.

We asked our reader review panel to read all 10 books in the Alex Rider series and report back... here is a taster of what they thought... And excitingly each new Alex Rider book has a quote from one of our Kids Reader Reviewers on the inside back cover!
