9780007273577: Thunder Raker (Agent Alfie, Book 1)

A hilarious new series for younger readers, following the misadventures of an ordinary boy at an extraordinary school for young spies...

Jake's dad is head of the Secret Service. Alice's dad is a double agent. Harry's dad has infiltrated SPUD – the Secret Partners for Undertaking Destruction. And Alfie's dad... is a postman.

Thunder Raker Manor is a very exclusive school. All the pupils are there because their parents or guardians are agents and spies.

All except one.

Because eight-year-old Alfie's dad isn't anything to do with the secret services. He's the local postman who just reckoned that Thunder Raker Manor was a great school. So when the Head Teacher receives a letter from the Prime Minister saying that Alfie has been given a special place and will start immediately, he isn't to know that Alfie's dad wrote it and slipped it in with the 'special' post...

Now Alfie has to get to grips with Thunder Raker’s unusual curriculum and some even stranger new friends. He’s got classes in camouflage (if anyone can ever find Mr Trick) and Assassination (only kids keep going missing from Miss Fortune’s class). And he’s now in permanent danger from SPUD agents. But to his surprise, Alfie finds that he might just be quite good at this spying game...

About the Author:

Justin Richards is the author of over a dozen genre and SF novels (including Dr Who), and is the co-author with Jack Higgins of two teenage thrillers, Sure Fire and Death Run. He lives in Warwick with his wife, two sons and a nice view of the castle.

From Booklist:

After Alfie moves to a new town, he is enrolled by mistake at Thunder Raker Manor, a top-secret school that trains children to be future British spies. At his new school, Alfie encounters a host of eccentric teachers and swashbuckling students. Although at first Alfie seems in over his head, his good sense and practical ideas help him get the best grades in the class on his first homework assignment, and by the end of the novel, he manages to thwart agents from the evil organization SPUD. This is the first title in a new series that will no doubt feature more light and satiric adventures with Alfie as he continues to discover that commonsense, simple solutions are usually the best. The bright concept, short length, and humorous, action-packed drawings that fill each chapter should keep this in demand and leave readers eager for the series’ next installment. Grades 3-5. --Todd Morning
