'This is a really adventurous book, about a boy called Alex who is a 15 year old super spy. There are four short stories in this book, some of them do not contain Alex Rider himself, but they still have a link to him. All the stories are fabulous, and I recommend this book to readers aged 9+.' Toppsta

'We loved this book. The introduction by Anthony Horowitz introduced the 4 stories and had us gripped from the first sentence. Each story was a thriller and a real page turner full of action. We read the book over a couple of nights but it really is hard to put this book down! We love Alex Rider books and it was great to get some background information on Alex Rider. This is a must read for anyone who loves action and adventure.' Toppsta

'As a huge Alex Rider fan, this book was read in one sitting, and thoroughly enjoyed! This book contains four short stories, which fill in some background info on some of the characters from the main series.' Toppsta
