Summer, 1940. Hitler's army is advancing towards Paris, and millions of French civilians are on the run. Amidst the chaos, two British children are being hunted by German agents.

Henderson's Boys: The Escape Book 1 Press Reviews

'Gripping and compelling' * - Carousel * This book was un-put-downable. It gripped me from start to finish, and was just as good as the CHERUB series, if not better! * Aaron, 14, First News * 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. * Amanda Craig, The Times * 'It has the feel of something quite big and satisfying... Muchamore's voice is fresh and direct.' * Daily Telegraph * has the feel of something quite big and satisfying ... Muchamore's voice is fresh and direct * The Daily Telegraph * This book was unputdownable. It gripped me from start to finish -- Aaron Marchant, aged 14 * First News * A brilliant series * Newcastle Upon Tyne Evening Chronicle * Muchamore emphases the power of his child protagonists to endure, to keep fighting whatever the insanely unfair world of adults throws at them * Waterstone's Books Quarterly * Gripping adventure ... Muchamore, author of the equally excellent Cherub series, knows exactly how to write for teenagers and this is a fantastic * The Sun * Gripping and compelling, this leaves readers on the edge of their seats, waiting for the next exciting instalment * Carousel *
