Product Description

Review

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

An excellent start to a promising series. It is every boy's wish to be a spy, and this book will enthrall every single one of them. (The Bookseller)

An exciting, swiftly moving tale (School Librarian)

A fast-paced action thriller, which should turn into a fantastic series - if James manages to live that long. (Young Post)

Book Description

A one-off title in the bestselling CHERUB series, written specially for World Book Day 2008. Who would ever believe that a kid on a sleepover could be a spy?

Format: Paperback
Robert Muchamore is an author who knows no boundaries. He tackles issues which other children's authors fear, which makes his books realistic, exciting and influential.

Yet, making 124 pages, into a book containing real issues, relating to a modern world, must have been challenging.

It would be easy for me to say he failed. But he didn't.

The book is quick to get started, and you're soon into the action packed school day. Featuring a highly skilled CHERUB agent, knocking 'Johno' unconscious. This is Muchamore's writing, it's not pretty, it's real.

The book then progresses to introduce newer readers into the 'CHERUB Universe'.

CHERUB is gritty and down to earth. You won't find gadgets and kids going into space in this book. No issue is forgotten, and Muchamore relates to what his readers really want to hear.

CHERUB is a must-read for any 12+ teenager. Adults can't ignore the issues that Muchamore addresses with style and confidence, and eventually the characters will always find the 'right' answer.

Despite it's size at 124 pages, it's still a great book. The plot is interesting, pretty detailed for it's size and has some awesome events within it. Definetly a 5 star rating from me.

I found this book very interesting , but not as action packed as the other series 2 books . I think that Robert has definitely been able to keep the series going without the books getting boring! I think that James is always going to be more interesting than Ryan because the first series of books is always the best one !

Despite only being a short story for world book day, the story is action packed and keeps you gripped until the very end.

Its was also good to get to know about some of the characters, who don't get big parts in the main books.

This is a great book that was written for World Book Day. It is just over 100 pages long and I think that if you are 10 - 14, you would love this book.

A book full of action. The ninth and a half (or is it the eighth and a half?) installment in the CHERUB series is no letdown. My only regrets about buying it was that it was so short. But, it's a WBD book after all. A book that could quite possibly hook some into reading the other books.

A Kid's Review on 13 July 2008
Format: Paperback
I thought the dark sun was a wonderful book because it was in great detail. The dark sun was so good i was traped inside the book from page one. It was so good i read the book cover to cover. Robert Muchmore is a fantastic writer and i am very impressed of what he can write into a small book. I hope he writes more after the General!!
