In this title, Horowitz's world-renowned teen super-spy Alex Rider's fourth mission comes to life in a thrilling, fast-paced and stylish graphic adaptation. Relaxing in the south of France, reluctant MI6 agent Alex Rider is finally able to feel like any ordinary fourteen-year-old - until a sudden, ruthless attack on his hosts plunges him back into a world of violence and mystery. And this time, MI6 don't want to know. Alex is determined to track down his friends' attackers, even if he must do it alone. But it's a path that leads to a long-buried secret - and a discovery more terrible than anything he could have imagined. Alex Rider has 90 minutes to save the world. This is a slick, clean, stylishly crafted and coloured graphic adaptation bringing to life all the adventure, thrills and spills of this bestselling story. Following the triumphant, international publication of "Stormbreaker: The Graphic Novel", the whole graphic novel series has gained wide recognition among reviewers, fans and literacy experts. Recent government initiatives encourage us to examine the reading habits of boys - with literacy levels among children in the UK lower than ever. This is a series of books that may offer an accessible and compelling alternative for otherwise reluctant readers.
