John Grisham, one of the world's favourite authors, turns his attention to children's books with Theodore Boone - a high-intensity legal drama for readers aged 11 and over.
This six-book collection introduces Theodore, a 13-year-old who wants nothing more than to swap his home life for a career in the courtroom. He lives for big trials and now the biggest murder case in his city's history is set to begin. A husband is awaiting trial for the murder of his wife and Theo is captivated. But then Theo uncovers a surprise witness. Will he be able to find a way to bring the killer to justice?
The son of two lawyers, Theo knows the criminal justice system better than anyone and often performs his own investigations - he looks into the disappearance of his friend, April; chases down a thief who has set him up; faces a moral dilemma when he illegally uncovers a terrible secret that could put a stop to some shady developers' plans; and gets caught up in the hunt for a serial killer...
I bought these books for my grandson who is 11. He is an avid reader and he loved the character of Theodore and thought the plot of each book was very exciting. He wants to know when the next book is available.
