Just a girl spreading the word about all the fun (and probably nerdy) things to do!

Books worthy of the Mission Impossible theme song
Well, when it comes to kids books I know a heck of a lot after being engrossed in reading since a young age.

Books you should look for are:

1. Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz which is all about a young British boy who becomes a super spy for MI6 and must constantly go undercover and face evil villains and thwart their plans!

There are 9 books in total throughout the series and there's even a feature film about the first book, Stormbreaker.

2. CHERUB by Robert Muchamore - this book series (at least 13 and growing) focuses again on children spies and sets them into realistic every day spy missions. There are no super mega villains who plot to take over the world but more modern threats such as bomb threats, activist groups and boot camp training. These are a good read with their own particular style but can at times be a little crude so I wouldn't give them to younger children.

3. Henderson's Boys by Robert Muchamore this series is a spin off from CHERUB and depicts British undercover agents in France and Germany during the war and shows the beginnings of the CHERUB organisation.

4. The Lab trilogy by Jack Heath these books follow agent six (a agent of the Deck) in order to uncover his past as well as the strange goings on at the Lab. This book series is also by an Australian author, so bonus points there!

5. Last but not least Young Bond by Charlie Higson - this book takes you back to the days of James Bond before he was agent 007. Now I'll be frank that I haven't personally read this book, but I have heard good reviews about it from friends who have.

So enjoy reading these spy novels and well, enjoy reading in general, because there really isn't anything better than a good book!
