Author information

ROBERT MUCHAMORE was born in Islington in 1972. As a teenager he dreamt of either becoming an architect, a photographer or a writer. On discovering that architects have to train for seven years and after quitting his Saturday job in a camera shop, he saved up enough money to buy a word processor and set his heart on writing. The only problem was, he didn't know what to write. So, he found a regular job and spent thirteen years as a private investigator. He was inspired to start writing again by his nephew's complaints about the lack of anything decent to read. Robert's CHERUB and Henderson's Boys series are bestsellers around the world. Robert grew up listening to mix tapes sent to him by his older brother, developing tastes for indie bands like Joy Division, The Pogues and The Smiths. The idea for Rock War came from seeing that many of Robert's fans turned up at book signings wearing the logos of long dead rock bands, and a realisation that his online fan forum had more kids talking about the X-Factor than about his books. For more information, go to www.muchamore.com. Probably best known for his starring role as Dr. "Mac" Macartney in the comedy television series Green Wing, Julian Rhind-Tutt appeared at the National Theatre, in 2007 in Landscape with Weapon by Joe Penhall. He was narrator for the BBC2 show 'The Seven Ages of Rock'; voiceover for British Airways ads; and appeared in a series of Barclaycard ads with his Green Wing co-star, Stephen Mangan.

How do you get boys to read? The answer is in this gritty series by Robert Muchamore. Exploring all of the issues kids go through from the awkward age of 10yrs through to 17 cleverly disguised through the simplistic, egotistic and slightly arrogant eyes of James Adams.

Regardless, this series is a refreshing read for all ages. Its punchy, gritty and delivers a flying kick to the stomach spinning you back into your childhood. You will be wishing you were an orphan CHERUB agent, completing basic training, learning russian and earning the ultimate recognition for performance - your black shirt.

Suddenly an orphan and facing eight years in the foster care system, James' life is turned upside down. Until he wakes up, in an orange shirt, groggy confused and realises he's been abducted- but could this be an opportunity of a lifetime?
