Robert Muchamore

Born on 26 December, 1972 in London, Robert Muchamore is the author of bestselling novels including the CHERUB books and Henderson’s Boys series. His action-packed books are huge favourites with young readers who are too old for children’s books but not quite old enough for adult novels. He started writing CHERUB to inspire his 12-year-old nephew to start reading again.

Robert had plans to become an architect, but when he discovered it would take seven years of training, he changed his mind. His first book, CHERUB: The Recruit was published in April, 2004 and he has also written Rock War - a series about four groups of kids trying to make it in the music business.

    When a small-time crook suddenly has big money on his hands, it's only natural that the police want to know where it came from. James' latest Cherub mission looks routine: make friends with the bad guy's children, infiltrate his home and dig up some leads for the cops to investigate. But the plot James begins to unravel isn't what anyone expected. And it seems like the only person who might know the truth is a reclusive eighteen-year-old boy. There's just one problem. The boy fell from a rooftop and died more than a year earlier.

    Chosen as a World Book Night 2014 title and a previous winner of the Red House Children's Book Award, CHERUB: The Recruit is the first entry in Robert Muchamore's bestselling series. A terrorist doesn't let strangers in her flat because they might be undercover police or intelligence agents, but her children bring their mates home and they run all over the place. The terrorist doesn't know that a kid has bugged every room in her house, cloned the hard drive on her PC, and copied all the numbers in her phone book. The kid works for CHERUB. CHERUB is not James Bond. There are no master criminals or high-tech gadgets. CHERUB kids live in the real world. They slip under adult radar and get information that sends criminals and terrorists to jail. For official purposes, these children do not exist.
