More About the Author

The Times already ranks Joe Craig alongside Anthony Horowitz, Charlie Higson and Robert Muchamore as one of "the best spy-kids authors... outstanding at both writing and plotting."

Fans all over the world agree. His first book was one of the biggest selling children's book debuts of 2005 in the UK, and since then his 'Jimmy Coates' novels have become a hit with young action-thriller addicts everywhere, winning awards and inspiring 8-13 year-olds to become keen readers:

"Few books have the power to drag boys away from their Xbox or Wii, but I've seen the Jimmy Coates series in action - Super Mario is no match for this schoolboy assassin." (The Independent, 50 Best Summer Reads)

"Joe Craig could be well justified as being compared to the great Anthony Horowitz." (Lovereading4kids.com)

Craig (born 30 June 1981 in London) is a novelist, screenwriter and musician, best known for the Jimmy Coates series of books, described in several reviews as 'The Bourne Identity for kids'.

Joe Craig studied Philosophy at Cambridge University then became a songwriter, winning numerous awards for his compositions before unexpectedly turning to writing books. When he's not writing he's visiting schools, playing the piano, drawing, inventing snacks, playing snooker, cricket and football, watching a movie, reading, training in martial arts or trying to control his pets.

His first album, entitled 'The Songman & Me, vol. 1' was released in December 2010.

Craig is consistently at the forefront of use of new media by children's writers. In 2005 he was one of the first authors to use Facebook to build a fanbase and enhance fans' experience of his writing, using character profiles as well as his personal pages to create an online world that reflected that of his books.

He was also one of the first children's writers to utilise Twitter as a means of communicating with fans and creating new stories. He continues to use both, as well as experimenting with new kinds of author videos and book trailers on video sites, such as youtube.

He lives in London with his wife and pets: a dog called Harpo and a dwarf crocodile called Professor Sven.

He keeps in touch with his readers through his website (www.joecraig.co.uk), facebook (www.facebook.com/jcpages.joecraig), twitter (www.twitter.com/joecraiguk) and band page (http://joecraig.bandcamp.com)

Product Description

Review

Praise for Jimmy Coates: Revenge

"Boys love this stuff, and so do girls. Jimmy is a pint-sized verision of Robocop or Terminator… Like Anthony Horowitz's splendid fantasies, [these novels] tap into almost everything a bolshy boy wants and feels. Immensely clever, immediately engaging, they will prepare a child for Orwell and Huxley." Amanda Craig, The Times

"Fast-paced and intelligently written." The Bookseller

"the sort of book to wow reluctant boy readers away from computer games and into the pages of a book." Books for Keeps

"Joe Craig has produced another thrilling page-turner." Jewish Chronicle

"A rollicking good spy romp." School House magazine.

And for Jimmy Coates: Target

"With cinematic skill, Craig unrolls a series of action-packed scenes, with a new crisis at every turn of the page. It's gripping, but not mindless” Angela Kilverstein

Praise for Jimmy Coates: Killer

“…a totally excellent adventure – a lit bit Bond, a lit bit Matrix and a lot of what you’ve never read before. Someone make this into a movie!” Flipside

“A gripping action-thriller that’s packed with twists.” Funday Times

“[Joe Craig] has developed the sharp satirical edge that keeps the new generation of boys hooked on books. Which is, in itself, the act of a superhero.” Amanda Craig, The Times

“The perfect primer to the Bourne series by Robert Ludlum.” VOYA

“…By turns excitingly action-packed, believably sensible and character driven, and then refreshingly paranoid, this is a book I'd be happy to recommend to the kid in everyone." Vector

From the Back Cover

Jimmy Coates seems like an ordinary boy, but he's not. He's genetically engineered to grow into the perfect government assassin. Speed, strength and deadly instinct - it's all in his blood. He has to fight not to kill ... while his government fights to kill him.

Shot down, stranded and assumed dead, Jimmy face his greatest struggle yet. But this time it's not just about survival ...

I read to my dyslexic son each night and have ended up buying the entire series, action packed at every page, a little gruesome in places but its not meant for a middle aged mum, my son laps it up!

Format: Paperback
This is the 4th Jimmy Coates book, and they're getting better and better. Killer was not very good, Target showed improvment, Revenge showed it was a respectable series, and Sabatage shows it is a great series. Up there with Alex Rider, and surpassed the Young James Bond series.
