    '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.' (The Escape) (Amanda Craig, The Times)

    Praise for books in the CHERUB series: 'Punchy, exciting, glamorous and, what's more, you'll completely wish it was true.' (The Sunday Express)

    5.0 out of 5 stars "Going back" has been a forward move 8 July 2009
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    The Cherub books have been enormously successful, but perhaps become a little "samey" over the last two books. However,these two "Hendersons Boys" books are really excellent ! The settings( Occupied France 1940) feel authentic and the stories move along at an excellent and exciting pace. There is more violence & cruelty than in the Cherub books and, therefore, definitely not for younger readers. Nevertheless a really excellent "development" by Muchamore. I look forward to more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting read! 3 Aug. 2009
    By Tasha VINE VOICE
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    After reading The Escape (the first of the Henderson's Boys series), it didn't seem like things could get any better but Eagle Day manages it from start to finish. Continuing the story of how CHERUB came to be, this story just gets more and more exciting.

    Set during World War II, Charles Henderson and four orphaned children work together in France to sabotage Hitler's invasion of Britain.

    5.0 out of 5 stars OH YES.. AWESOME 8 April 2010
    If I could spell that big word in 'Mary Poppins' I would say that you know the 'Super;istic... whatever.
    The book is great, more grown up than Cherub, very informative (Thats a big word) a little bit of humor, I never thought I would say it, but it's better than Cherub, as good as Jason Steed and way better than Alex Rider and Jimmy Coates.
    If you imagine the young James Bond books, this is set just after those started but in France. The only bad thing is that like Alex Rider, Young James Bond, Harry Potter, Tom Sawyer, Oliver Twist and all the Cherub characters, these characters are ALSO orphans. Its just Jimmy Coates and Jason Steed who seem to have a parent. I guess it makes them vunrable and us feel sad for them.
    So as you can imagine it starts off in an Orphanage run by a big fat guy who eats all the foof, at one point I thought I was reading Oliver Twist again, until it got going.

    Overall, a fantatsic book, great story and exciting. I will now read the next two Hendersons Boys books, 6 stars out of 5, lol

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel from a great author. 6 Jun. 2009
    By Leo
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    After reading the previous book in the 'Henderson's boys series' I decided to pre-order this book. I was not dissapointed. The author manages to provide a gritty realistic picture of occupied France as well as a good plot and relateable characters. Overall five stars - a definite recommendation - Buy this book!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic, believable- for young and old alike 14 Jun. 2009
    I've read many books by this author and one things always impresses me. The dialogue. Some authors muck it up entirely and the conversations sound so fake and cheesy you do not want to read on. Now Muchamore, manages a realistic style of dialogue, made even more impressive as most of the conversations take place between children- it sounds utterly like what teenagers would say and react.
    He also manages to recreate the atmosphere perfectly, and i can see the book is well researched and thought out. I'm looking forward to the next book!

    5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed the whole HB series 5 Jun. 2015
    By Nick
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    The henderson's Boys books were the first of the CHERUB books that i read. I was riveted from start to finish. However there are some obvious mistakes in the series which could have been avoided by some research:
    Just as an instance:-
    In the earlier books SS?Gestapo officers were given military not SS ranks (happily in the later books this was rectified)
    In one book we had a captain, in army uniform visiting the establishment. An army captain is lower in rank than a naval commander, so would not have been called sir or saluted first by Henderson.
    .The sergeant who was in charge of parachute training was called sir by a lot of people. NO! Maybe the 'kids' would have called him sir but anyone else would have addressed him as sergeant, sarge or sar'nt.
    The sergeant who trained the 'kids' as snipers was referred to as an Air Force sergeant. He would have been an Army Air Force sergeant.

    Little details but as I said - a little research would have avoided this.

    I was not keen on the many references to thrashings and to even suggest that Henderson would have authorised a 'birching' of one boy by another just a short time before a mission is kind of ridiculous. The only related issue that I found slightly amusing was when Marc was caned on his bare backside by a tiny nun for fighting.

    All in all, though, I really enjoyed the whole HB series, and was sorry when there were no more to read.. .
