John Vincent was the nom de plume of John Peel, a serial writer of novelisations (eg Doctor Who, Star Trek: DS9) who adapted 6 episodes of the cartoon James Bond Jr in 1992 for Puffin books. The concept saw 007's nephew boarding at Warfield Academy, a high security school in England for the young relatives of secret service operatives (Q's grandson, Felix Leiter's son), in between battling agents of SCUM (Saboteurs & Criminals United in Mayhem).
Derived purely from the movie characters, Peel expanded on the story lines, gearing them to a slightly older audience while remaining faithful to the film continuity. Facing increasing scrutiny from the holders of the Bond literary copyright it became a thankless task but it's an impressive effort, doing for the film Bond what Charlie Higson did for the book Bond.
"A View to a Thrill" was an adaptation of the opening TV story (with the less imaginative title) "The Beginning". The plot sees James Bond Jr arriving at Warfield in his uncle's Aston Martin DB5. Believing the car to contain an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) Generator, super criminal SCUM Lord wants to get his hands on it. Before he's had time to settle in, JBJ must save new friend Tracy Milbank (daughter of Warfield's principal), when criminal henchman Jaws steals the car with Tracy inside!
