“Most school boys dream of being spies. With Alex, we have a spy who dreams of being a schoolboy,” says Alan Blunt, M16.
The British secret intelligence agency M16 suspect something’s going on at the Point Blanc Academy, an elite prep school for rebels, so they send their best go-to-man, Alex Rider.
The Alex Ryder books are a supremely successful spy series – children age 10 + love the mix of action and adventure, and the devil-may-care charm of a very worldly 15 year-old Alex. Think a young James Bond and you’ve got Alex Ryder.
