World Book Day 2008
By Robert Muchamore
A one-off shorter title in the bestselling CHERUB series. Who would ever believe that a kid on a sleepover could be a spy?
It's the last day of term. Three lads are clearing out their lockers, organising a sleepover and hatching a plan to spatter a girl with rancid coleslaw.
But things aren't what they seem. One boy's father is a member of Dark Sun, a criminal organisation dealing in nuclear weapons technology, while another is a CHERUB agent sent to stop him.
CHERUB kids live in the real world, slipping under adult radar and getting information that sends criminals and terrorists to jail.
For official purposes, these children do not exist.
Robert Muchamore was born in Islington in 1972 and spent thirteen years working as a private investigator. He loves Arsenal and watching people fall down holes. He hates swimming and getting chased by cows.
He was inspired to start writing by his nephew`s complaints about the lack of anything for him to read!
The CHERUB series has now become a number one bestseller in several countries.
